Big Run Loop Two Nights Backpacking Trip
Friday, Sep 23, 2022
– Sunday, Sep 25, 2022
11:00am – 3:00pm
Big Run Loop in southern Shenandoah National Park offers an incredible sampling of what the park has to offer – solitude, rocky ridges, trout streams, river crossings, and forested valleys. Following a 13 mile loop and setting up camp each night, this is a vigorous backpack with a balance of strenuous climbs and amazing views in one of the more serene areas of the park. The Big Run watershed is the largest in Shenandoah National Park and offers excellent fishing and is a wonderful area to explore.
