Great Hike and Not Too Difficult

The trail winds upon through the woods then opens up when you get to the top. The view is amazing and well worth the trip.

On the chilly side, my husband and I were dressed appropriately for a good hike. We were glad that we had on good hiking boots. Though the wind blew, we know how to grab on to rocks and kept climbing until we reached the "forehead." People down below looked so small.

Easy enough for everyone, give yourself 3-4 hrs and enjoy the beauty that awaits around every bend. Shenandoah is one of the earth's most beautiful places.

This hike has a high return - not a ton of effort but great views once you're there. Easy to do with the kids and very close to the lodge if you happen to be staying or eating there. Go for it.

I have heard a lot about this place espl on review sites and then thought of visiting this during the Fall. This was on everyone's top places to visit at Luray.This is a good place with reasonable parking space (not much although) and the total hike was 1.6 miles. We started with kids and they really had good fun as... More

This was an easy hike up to a very rewarding vista. Unfortunately it was a hazy day when we went, but that didn't detract much from the beauty. I would recommend this hike to anyone looking for a quick 1.6 mile hike (good news is you hike up to get there and down to get back).

Nice hike up Stony Man with daily tours offered free by Park Rangers (assuming in season only). We received lots of interesting information on the hike (why Virginia Hams were so sweet, etc.) and the kids had a great time. Highly recommend, easy elevation change, but not stroller friendly. Fabulous views when the leaves are changing.

The Stony Man Trail is an easy hike. When we reached the summit, we were really happy because we were able to see something breathtaking.

There is a park fee only to enter/drive into Skyline drive, which is good for a few days (there is no additional charge for this particular spot). We took a chance from the reviews on this place, and squeezed in a visit before sunset. The easy hike may feel like a challenge if you're out of shape, but not at... More
