|A moderate dayhike starting from the edge of the park will take you on a fun (but usually crowded) boulder scramble across the top of Old Rag. Here are some friends having lunch just below the summit.
|Lewis Spring Falls is reached in a moderate half-day hike from the Big Meadows Area. Combine this with trails to Dark Hollow Falls, Rose River Falls, and Blackrock Overlook for a variety of moderate to strenuous dayhikes.
|This leaf covered trail is part of a short hike to Millers Head, which has a nice view, but is partially obstructed. It makes for a pleasant walk if you're staying at Skyland, but otherwise not a trail to go out of your way for.
|Outstanding views can be had at Marys Rock. It's just a short distance off the Appalachian Trail and can be accessed from the Panaroma area on a 3.8 mile round-trip hike which climbs 1140 feet.
|A short walk followed by a short rock scramble will take you to an outstanding 360 degree view from the top of Blackrock Summit (that's Trayfoot Mountain in the center).
|Whiteoak Canyon is one of the most popular hiking areas in the park, with a variety of dayhike options ranging from easy to strenuous. There are six waterfalls on Whiteoak Run, but you'll have to go off-trail to see this view of Whiteoak Falls #5.
|Whiteoak Falls #6 is one of the most scenic on Whiteoak Run, and can be reached in a fairly short and easy hike from the bottom of Whiteoak Canyon.
|A short but rough extension of the Lewis Spring Falls trail will take you to the bottom of the falls.
|On a pleasant dayhike in mid-May I found numerous blooms of Spiderwort along the top of Trayfoot Mountain.
|Jones Runs Falls can be seen on a moderate dayhike loop which will also take you by two waterfalls on Doyles River.
