One of Shenandoah National Park's most popular destinations is Whiteoak Canyon and its six waterfalls, with heights from 35 to 86 feet. There are swimming holes at the bottom of each waterfall, but do not expect much privacy because they are quite popular. The adventurous, physically fit hikers can take the steep hike to the Upper Falls, Whiteoak's highest waterfall.

Those who love to push themselves may enjoy the strenuous hike around the Cedar Run/ Whiteoak Circuit, which provides views of a few of the waterfalls.

Looking for a short hike? Hike the 2 mile trail to the lower falls.
