South River Falls Trail

Today I went hiking at the Shenandoah National Park with some friends. We went on the South River Falls Trail, a trail close to the southern end of the Central District of the park. The trail went downhill for about 2.3 mi towards the South River Falls, the third tallest waterfall in the park at 83 feet. The fall foliage was still pretty nice on the trail, though on higher grounds, the leaves had almost completely fallen. Coming back we decided to follow the fire road all the way to the Skyline Drive. It’s roughly similar distance compared to going back on the original trail, but it was a little easier uphill hike. The photo below was taken at the stream close to the base of the waterfall.
