Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Shenandoah National Park
Let’s see what the colors are at the start of autumn in the Shenandoah National park.
The Doyles River trail offers a short (4hr) and a long (5hr) circuit of moderate difficulty. Here’s what the guide book says: “These circuits offer rewarding hikes along the east slope of the Blue Ridge. … they feature waterfalls along Doyles River and Jones Run … [which] are located in deep gorges with broken, precipitous cliffs and enourmous trees…” They also pass overlooks.
The trail head parking is located at mile 81.1 of skyline drive in the Shenandoah National park. the hike is 3.2 miles round trip. easy to find.

This Hike was originally led by Stefi Kohl the former club member.
After you join the trip or the waitlist you will be asked to see if you would like to lead it. It is very easy and you do not need a car to lead or previous leading experience. Please volunteer, you would enjoy it.The club officers will give you enough information to start.
The club provides: Gas refund, Shenandoah park enterance fee, backpacks if needed.
you please bring: water, snacks, camera if you have, lunch and park pass if you have one. bug spray could be a good idea.
