Description

This yellow-blazed former fire road is used as a connector for various loop runs on either side of Big Run. Starting at the west edge of the park, just east of Lynnwood, the trail climbs gradually as it heads south toward the Overall Run Trail, just past Eppert Hollow.

Thanks to Larry W. Brown, for sharing this trail description. If you’re interested in learning more details about great hikes, weather, camping / lodging, wildlife, and scenic drives, check out the comprehensive Guide to Shenandoah National Park.
