If you are any kind of a hiker, on this outing you can not only enjoy the verdant woods of the Shenandoah, but also see four out of the six  waterfalls and cascades in four hours or so.  My son-in-law and I did not have time to take the 8.2 mile circuit, listed as very strenuous.  We did hike the Whiteoak Canyon Trail down to the upper and lower falls then came back the same way.  A ranger estimated it to have been about six miles round trip. 

Here are a few pictures to tantalize and draw you into this excursion.
