Need to Know

This trail is part of the Shenandoah 500 hiking challenge. There are two relatively easy water crossings.

Description

There is a steep elevation gain from the trailhead on Skyline Drive to the telecommunication towers and significant elevation loss from the telecommunication towers all the way to the end of the trail. There is a lovely stream that runs along the trail on the lower portion of the trail once you are past Beagle Gap.
