Description

This trail starts from the Wildcat Ridge Trailhead parking area off of Skyline Drive. It descends gradually along ridge tops with views to the south of Turk Mountain and Crimora Lake down below to the southwest. Be prepared for a number of stream crossings the lower the trail dives, as water collects in streams that flow into Meadow Run below. At the base of the canyon, the trail ends at the junction with the Riprap Trail.

Thanks to Larry W. Brown, for sharing this 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.
