Rockytop and Big Run Loop

Rockytop and Big Run Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This loop takes you along the high ridge of Rockytop Mountain, where talus slopes and open boulders make for solitude-filled lookouts of the adjacent mountainscape and Shenandoah Valley beyond.

Drop into crystalline Big Run, exploring the gorgeous valley of the park’s largest watershed from low to high. The Big Run watershed is one of Shenandoah’s finer backpacking destinations, even on the adjacent high ridges, where you must bring your own water."
