Head west to the beautiful Shenandoah National Park in Virginia during peak fall color season.  After a driving tour of Skyline Drive, we will hit the White Oak Canyon Trail and head downhill into the canyon.  Our trip leaders will spread out in pace groups so you can go as far down the trail as you desire.  Along the way you will see the upper falls and possibly make it to the lower falls.  The views are spectacular.  This is "must do" hike during your time at UMB.
