This family-friendly hike will be moderately challenging. We will cross rocky streams, trek through lowlands, & hike some inclines. Expect elevation changes of approximately 600' from the Niles Cabin to the Shenandoah River & back, about 2.5 miles roundtrip.

ACCESSIBILITY: All of our hikes offer opportunities to shorten the distance and time. We can arrange to meet individuals or groups seeking a less challenging excursion. Please let us know if you have particular needs or interests, we will be happy to try to recommend & arrange variations.

GETTING HERE is part of the fun: Allow ample time to enjoy the scenery. The final portion of your drive is along rural gravel roads. Please welcome this as the beginning of your restorative wilderness experience. Slow down, breathe, & relax. Lean into the twists & turns. Roll with the ups & downs. Enjoy the shifting light & changing temperature. Welcome the sights, sounds, & smells of the forest. As you ford the stream just before the center, imagine a splash of fresh mountain water gently cleansing accumulated debris from your vehicle, mind, & spirit. For precise directions, visit friendswilderness.org or use your GPS.
