wanderweg83Cedar Run to Hawksbill  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 24, 2015


Did this one as a more challenging attempt on Hawksbill with three friends from Charlottesville. It lived up to the description on the main page. It felt more like a New England trail than a Shenandoah trail, which was a nice change of pace. We saw loads of trilium in bloom on our way up, and plenty of other wildflowers. Didn't see any other people until we crossed Skyline Drive toward Hawksbill. There are a number of faces and crags on the north (?) side of Cedar Run, which look interesting. I'm wondering if anyone has climbed them. All in all, a wonderful day out in the mountains.

Went down Cedar Run as part pf the loop with White Oak Canyon. The falls get more and more primeval as you descend.

I've done it several times, usualy coming down it after going up Whiteoak Canyon, but I've also gone up it as a training hike continuing on to the top of Hawksbill and then going down and around Hawksbill and back down Cedar Run - a bunch of half-gallon bottles of water in the pack will add to the training.

Combine this with Whiteoak for a six hour burn on your legs. Constant waterfalls. Lots of trout in the pools.

It was so dry when I hiked this that the waterfalls were not even worthwhile to look at. So little water. Still, a good descent that hurts the toes coming from the top of Hawksbill.

Been up several times and in all seasons. Always nice, always quieter than its neighbor, part of what for my money is the best loop in Shenandoah.
