Oh man. We hiked the White Oak Canyon/Cedar Run loop yesterday, and it was an 8 mile, nearly six hour doozy. Don’t get me wrong, it was gorgeous and I felt so good after, but I don’t think I’ll want to do this one again. If you do this hike, definitely don’t make the mistake we did of not starting this hike until almost 1 p.m.

It took us about 2 hours and 15 minutes to get to the parking area from where we live near D.C., and the drive was gorgeous. I mean look at that scenery below! You just can’t get views like that close to the city. I always feel recharged after being out in no man’s land.

Little Devils Stairs 1We did a beautiful doozy of a hike yesterday: Little Devils Stairs in Shenandoah National Park, a 5.5 mile loop. If you do this hike, and I suggest that you do, follow the super clear and spot on directions at that link. Even though I just trained for and ran a freaking marathon, I am feeling it today! I always love that feeling.

It’s about a two hour nice drive from D.C. to get to Little Devils Stairs. I plugged the coordinates given at the link above (38.73060, -78.25827) into my GPS, and it does take you straight to the parking area, even though it seems like you’re going to a random field. Don’t worry — just keep driving! Read the rest of this entry »
