This point-to-point run, the brainchild of Russ Evans, is a variant of the standard Dickey Ridge run. Instead of running out-and-back from the entrance to Skyline Drive in Front Royal, this run is a point-to-point, starting in Linden and finishing in Front Royal. Consequently, a short 9 mile car shuttle must be made on Route 55 between Front Royal and Linden. Aid can be dropped at the Route 522 road crossing, about 8 miles into the run.
Leave the Route 55 trailhead and head north on the white-blazed Appalachian Trail
