This counterclockwise is the southern loop of the Massanutten Mountain Trails 100.
From the trailhead on Route 211, take the orange-blazed Massanutten South Trail for 1.6 miles to a dirt road near a picnic area. Take a right on dirt road and climb 0.5 miles to a wooden bench and trail junction. At trail intersection, make a left on orange-blazed Massanutten South Trail for the climb up Bird Knob. Stay on orange for a total of 3.1 miles. Be alert for a left turn (at a wooden post, 1.85 miles from turn off Wildflower) to stay on orange (do not follow white blazed Bird Knob trail), then continue to end of double track (“Ant Road”) at a gate.
Continue downhill on gravel orange-blazed Big Mountain Road for 0.85 miles. After the first small climb, look for wooden post at trailhead on left and turn left onto purple-blazed Roaring Run Trail. Follow up and then down for 1.0 mile to Browns Hollow Run Trail (be alert for this trail junction — if you cross any stream, wet or dry, you have gone too far downhill). Take a left on pink-blazed Browns Hollow Run Trail and follow 4.2 miles to orange-blazed Massanutten South Trail (it will be a sharp right — if you reach a gate you have gone about 100 feet past the correct turn). Right off pink onto orange-blazed Massanutten South Trail for 1.6 miles back to Route 211 and your car.
