Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Cedar Run & Whiteoak Canyon
Cedar Run and Whiteoak Canyon are two trails that have gorgeous waterfalls, natural waterslides, and swimming holes. With a high in the 60s on Saturday, it might be a bit chilly for swimming, but the views of the falls will still be beautiful.
This hike is an 8.2 mile circuit with ~2400 ft. elevation gain. We will go up Cedar Run and down Whiteoak Canyon at a moderate pace with breaks to take in the sights (and play in the water, depending on the weather).
We will depart from Echols at 11am, make the hour drive to the trailhead, start on the trail around noon or slightly thereafter, hike for about 6 hours with snack breaks, and arrive back in C’ville no later than 7pm.
Everyone will be waitlisted until I have a driver. Drivers get waitlist priority (the club provides reimbursements for gas plus tip).
