Description

Parking can be found at the northern trailhead at the Elizabeth Furnace Recreation Area. There is no parking at the southern trailhead, off Panhandle Road - US613. This is a rocky trail that only gets rockier and steeper as you get closer to the Massanutten Trail. Look out for poison ivy along stretches of the trail.

This trail has some technical sections.  The leaves hide a lot of the holes making it hard to pick a good line.
