The hike is moderately difficult and worth the climb to the breath taking views at the top. The trail is well marked and maintained. We were even able to claim we walked a pat of the Appalachian Trail. You need to access via the Skyline Drive Shanandoah Park entrances.

On our extended family vacation, my boyfriend & I did this walk round trip in less than a half an hour. The views you have for such a short hike are amazing. Days later we took non-hikers of our family along - a group of 15 aged 5 to 62. We may have taken a bit longer, but still less... More

My wife and I did this hike on the recommendation of the park ranger. She is six months pregnant, and was able to do the hike with only a couple of breaks. The summit is big enough to sit down and enjoy the view.

Excellent hike with great views. Some climbs, but not too strenuous overall. Minimal bouldering, but some unevern trail sections. Well maintained trail.

Not too difficult but a lot of watching out for rocks when you step. Nice view at the end. And three little bears coming up the trail too!

The day we planned for this hike turned out to be partly cloudy and we could see the mountain top covered with clouds. We decided to take the chance and hiked it. PLEASE NOTE IT COST $20 TO ENTER THE PARK WHICH WE DID NOT KNOW! $20 is pretty steep when all we planned was to do this hike since... More

We hiked to the summit to watch the sun set and to watch the July 4th fireworks down in Luray. It was beautiful and worth the hike!
