"This long circuit hike takes you to several of the park’s most refreshing waterfalls."

"In springtime, the falls along Doyles River and Jones Run may
make for the most attractive waterfall walk in Virginia."

Excellent trail, really enjoyed this one. We parked at Browns gap parking off of Skyline Drive. After parking, cross skyline drive and find a beautiful grassy old fire road used by Stonewall Jackson in the Civil War. After 1 mile, take a sharp right and walk along Doyles river. There are 3 above average waterfalls and the vegetation is beautiful. There was a water crossing as you approach the 3rd waterfall that required waling on a log and skipping several boulders. The loop was great, good workout and was over 6.5 miles by parking at Browns gap instead of at Doyles River Parking Lot. I would recommend this trail, we did it in about 4 hours 15 minutes.
