Whiteoak Canyon was a fairly simple hike featuring about four waterfalls. In the course of the hike, you follow the same stream and incline and decline quite a bit. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Shenandoah.

We parked at the lower lot off route 600 in Syria. We were staying on this side of the park so this made for a shorter drive, and I like hiking the uphill first anyway! We started early - about 8:45am on a Wednesday and...More
