Browns Gap Turnpike Professional Review and Guide

"This loop features both Virginia history and natural beauty. Start at Browns Gap, site of significant Civil War activity, especially by Confederate legend Stonewall Jackson. Head down a 200-year-old turnpike, passing a Rebel’s grave. Leave the historic road and follow Doyles River past two significant waterfalls.

Climb up Jones Run, viewing several old-growth trees, and see one more big cataract. Finally, complete the loop by passing by Dundo Picnic Area, once a Civilian Conservation Corps Camp, while Shenandoah National Park was being developed."
