Description

The Graves Mill Trail is a relatively easy run that parallels the Rapidan River. The trailhead is a small gravel parking area at the end of Route 662. This is a no-fee entrance to Shenandoah National Park.

The trailhead is somewhat isolated but in a safe, rural area. This beautiful trail is well-marked and almost completely shaded during spring through fall.

The Rapidan River is a beautiful fast running stream that provides for catch and release fishing. The run crosses two streams that most runners find easy to cross using river rock/boulders. This is not a busy trail and it is normal to run up and back and see only a few fellow runners.

The closest store for food, drinks, and gas is in Wolftown, about seven miles from the trailhead. There are several trails that connect to Graves Mill trail if you want a longer route.
