The Pond Run/Racer Camp Hollow Loop is a strenuous 11 mile circuit hike with several stream crossings and a 1200 foot elevation gain in the first 2 miles. Total elevation gain for the entire loop is 1600 feet. There is a short rock scramble to White Rocks with nice views of Cedar Run Valley, Little North Mountain, Massanutten Mountain and, on a really clear day, the Blue Ridge of Shenandoah National Park. The 11 miles will be split between the two days, we’ll be making camp about halfway.
