Due to forecast temperatures in the high 90’s, the hike leaders have decided to alter this hike to be less-strenuous and more in keeping with the day.
Join us for a day hike in the Shenandoah National Park for a hike along Overall Run to the Overall Run Falls overlook, with a view of Overall Run Falls (at 93 ft, the tallest waterfall in SNP), and a view of the Massanutten Mountain Range to the west.
On the return, we’ll stop at one of three swimming holes for a rest and swim, so in addition to the essentials (water, sunscreen, bugspray, and snacks), bring a towel/swimming attire, water shoes, etc.
Length: 5.8 miles
Start time: 10:00 am
Duration: approximately 5 hours with swim / lunch
Hike route/description (we’ll be hiking counter-clockwise to the Falls overlook, then retrace our steps back past the parking lot turnoff to the swimming holes)
Meeting point: Park at the end of VA 630 where the paved road ends. DO NOT park on the gravel private driveway. Please respect private property. Foot traffic ONLY.
