Hazel River Trail in Shenandoah National Park
Length: 6.8 miles
Hazel River Trail is a strenuous 6.8 mile through the heart of what is known as Hazel Mountain Country. It was the last heavily settled area before it became part of the Shenandoah Nation Park. Contrary to what I’ve read, I find the trails to be enjoyable with nice views along Sam’s Ridge and White Rocks Trails, scenic Hazel River and a waterfall and cave to visit as a focal point of the trip.
