I love hiking along side a cascading stream. Meadow Run in Riprap Hollow is no exception with waterfalls and rock walls and swimming holes with a myriad layering green. There is also a good variety of terrain as you also has nice rocky viewpoints at Chimney Rock and some minor off trail fun scrambling up Calvary Rocks. The section along the Appalachian Trail was actually the most boring part of our hike. With that, I would say the Riprap Hollow loop is a really good representation of the Shenandoah experience.
