Overall Run Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Peaks and waterfalls surely rank as one of the prime motivators—and rewards—for a day spent hiking, and doubly so if you work hard to get there. There are no shortages of waterfalls in Shenandoah National Park, from the wildly popular Whiteoak Canyon to the Rose River Falls, where multiple cascades flow off bare-faced rock after heavy rains. But there’s only one “tallest”: 93 feet to be exact, and it’s found on the western slope of the Blue Ridge at Overall Run. From the staggering falls, the mountainous panorama unfolds westward over Massanutten’s double ridges, and farther off on the hazy horizon looms Great North Mountain."
--Bill and Mary Burnham, Hiking Virginia (Falcon Guides).
"This ramble in Shenandoah’s north district features one of the finest views in the area: the 93-foot falls at Overall Run, which can be especially spectacular in the spring.When you’re ready to begin hiking, walk on the pavement past the entrance to the campground—this is Mathews Arm Road. Beyond the entrance, bear left on Knob Mountain Road. Pass the hook-up station for RVs, walk around a gate, then continue downhill on a road that turns to gravel. Shortly thereafter, at 0.5 miles, you’ll spot a post on the right indicating the Heiskell Hollow Trailhead—your route. On the left is a sign for Knob Mountain Trail."
