Moderate hikers will continue along the AT to the parking area just past Little Stony Man Overlook. Long hikers will take a loop along the White Oak Canyon fire road, Meadows Horse Trail, Old Rag fire road, Corbin Mountain Trail, Indian Run Trail, and Nicholson Hollow Trail to rejoin the AT and from there proceed to the parking area.
