From there long hikers will go north to take the Fox Hollow Trail, while moderate hikers go south directly on the Dickey Ridge Trail. Long hikers will take the Snead Farm Loop Trail then go south on the Dickey Ridge Trail. All hikers will go down the spur trail to Lands Run to view a waterfall about a half mile from Skyline Drive, then all hikers backtrack on the Dickey Ridge Trail to return to the Visitor Center. There will be opportunities to see numerous wildflowers (possibly including yellow lady slippers) in the area at this time of year.
