Description

This horse trail heads out at a moderate downhill grade for two and three-quarters miles until its junction with the Whiteoak Canyon Fire Road and Whiteoak Canyon trail. The reward for this trail can be found at the end, with the beautiful series of cascades along the Robinson River that make up Whiteoak Falls.

Remember to look out for and yield to horseback riders.

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