The Hike In Virginia That Takes You To Not One, But TWO Insanely Beautiful Waterfalls
One of the best parts about living in Virginia is enjoying the proximity to truly amazing natural attractions. It’s no wonder why hiking is such a beloved pastime around here. And if you’ve got a thing for waterfalls, there’s a trail near Luray that promises not just one but two incredible falls.
Located along Skyline Drive, Doyles River is a popular trek that leads hikers near the famed Appalachian Trail. Amidst gorgeous scenery and mountain views, hikers will pass two distinctive cascades that add to the allure of this beautiful landscape. The out-and-back trip lasts a little over three miles and is ranked as moderate.
