Trail shared by Barry Croker

A steep to steady descent on the east side of Milford Gap

Features -none-

Be aware of private property along the bottom portions of the trail. The only access to this trail is via the Tolliver Trail from the bottom or via the Massanutten Trail from the ridge. There is no way to use this trail to connect Page Valley Rd to Panhandle Rd without traversing private property--local land owners are very sensitive to trespassing and not friendly to "lost" riders or hikers.

Description

Starting at Milford Gap, this trail drops down along an old wagon road towards the Shenandoah River valley along the east side of the Massanutten ridge. The trail begins somewhat rocky and washed out, but is relatively non-technical as it descends. There is a rocky stretch after the first switchback to the left, but then it mellows out the lower you go.

To descend to the river, stay left at the second switchback and take the Tolliver Trail down towards Burner's Bottom.

If you stay right at the intersection, you can go all the way down to the abandoned Hazard Mill canoe camp, but cannot continue any further without leaving public land. To exit you'll have to re-trace your route back up to the Gap or to the Tolliver Trail.
