White Oak Canyon and Cedar Run

  • White Oak Canyon

Same deal as last Sunday. I'm going to do the loop clockwise - up Cedar Run and down White Oak Canyon (that way we finish up with waterfalls and swimming) from the Weakley Hollow Rd trail head. About 8 miles along a moderate trail. I would highly recommend a sturdy pair of shoes as Cedar Run is a little rough in spots...and lots of water!

Leave RVA at 8 AM, meet at the trail head at 10 AM. $8/person SNP fee.

    YouTube made the video look really dark and poor quality, but you get the idea!

    Hey everyone, sorry we missed you on the trail. Our GPS lost signal on the way there, and we ended up going onto Skyline Drive and starting from the upper parking lot on the White Oak Canyon trail. We hiked 2.3 miles down the trail to the upper waterfall, ate lunch there, and then hiked the 2.3 miles back to the car. We stayed for almost an hour at the waterfall hoping to see the group that started from the bottom of the trail, but it never came to be. Anyway, just for future note, we may want to exchange phone numbers before the carpool for future hikes, because we wanted to call someone from the other group to tell them not to wait for us once we realized we were heading to the wrong parking lot.

      Ya definitely a good idea. We tried to call ya'll once we realized we had missed the exit, but unfortunately I didn't have anyone's number. We'll get things right next time hopefully.

    Hey, guys! Sorry this is so last minute but if any of you have an extra rain coat you wouldn't mind sharing, would you mind bringing it for me to borrow. Thanks!

      I talked with Andrew E., and it looks like he'll be driving too. So we've now got 2 seats available (not much leg room though). We'll be meeting with everyone else at the Carytown Kroger if you want to ride with us.

    Any idea roughly what time we'll be back in Richmond? I'm interested in a kayaking event in the evening, but not sure if we'll be back in time from this for me to RSVP for it. Thanks!

    • Abby

      So we should be packing food with us?

      I would highly recommend bringing a lunch and/or a snack. Also, 2L water and rain gear!

    This sounds great! Would love to snag a ride with someone as I don't think my old, clunky Volvo is a good candidate for a 2 hour drive. I'd be more than willing to chip in gas, etc.

      July 17, 2013

    Very excited to go! It'll be my first hike :) I can drive if anyone needs a ride...since I'm new to VA, I may need help finding my way.

    July 17, 2013

    • LS

    Bathing suits? Towels?

    July 16, 2013

    • Andrew B

      Its entirely up to you. I'll probably just swim in the clothes I'm wearing and bring a small (wash cloth sized) towel to dry off, if necessary.
