Alleghany County Virginia Hiking Trails

Jerry's Run Trail


George Washington and Jefferson National Forests

Jerry's Run Trail begins at FDR69 in a forest clearing and follows a well-used four wheel-drive road down to Jerry's Run.  The trail crosses Jerry's Run and follows the creek, crossing it eight (8) more times before reaching the Forest Service boundary line.

The first 1.3 miles , this trail is a four wheel drive road.  The trail follows the creek closely.  After the second stream crossing the road is not drivable and gets much less use.  There are some impressive rock formations along this shorter section that make for a very enjoyable hike.  since it gets less use, this section is also harder to follow.  None of the trail is marked.

This would be a refreshing hike in the summer with many opportunities to get your feet wet.  In the winter and spring the water is higher and stream crossings are difficult to navigate without getting wet.  The hike should take two to three hours to complete, round trip.


Jerry’s Run Trail is located in western Alleghany County.  From I-64 take the Jerry’s Run exit (exit 1) and turn left onto FDR 69.  Continue south on FDR 69 to a clearing on the right.  This is the trailhead and parking area.
