“A beautiful and challenging trail into canyon scenery like nothing else at Shenandoah National Park.”— Joe Danz
The trail is pretty well marked but even if you lose it, just stay along the river. You’re in a gorge and there isn’t that much room to mess up. Once you are past the climbing, go to Keyser Run Road and turn left. Make your way back to the bottom and to the parking lot.
The second half of the run follows the Keyser Run Fire Road back down past the Bolen Cemetery. This is a pleasant run through some old growth.
