“A short and scenic out-and-back run to Lands Run Falls.”— Larry W. Brown
The falls are a group of small waterfalls that drop a total of approximately 80 feet through a narrow gorge. Except in spring, when the snow is melting, or following rainy periods during summer, there typically isn't much water flowing here. Unfortunately, there is no vantage point from which you can see all the falls at once.
To see the first cascade, head across the stream to the left bank and cautiously work your way down through the rocks, watching out for poison ivy during the warmer months. Please stay on the path for your own safety and to prevent damage to sensitive vegetation.
Thanks to Larry W. Brown, for sharing this 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.
