The trails that lead to the water slides in White Oak Canyon, VA can be fairly strenuous, gaining 1,500 feet in elevation in less than two miles on the return trip, but the trip is well worth it. White Oak Canyon has at least five waterfalls, some of which are steep and fast, especially after a good rain. The longest slide drops about 20 feet and leads into a cool, deep pool, which is particularly refreshing on a muggy Virginia summer day. You can take Cedar Run Trail or do the White Oak Canyon/Cedar Run Loop for more waterfalls and a better workout.
