Great views, very doable for a 5 year old, moderate incline. This is walkable from the lodging area, so great place to start soon after check in , and then head straight to dining hall!

This is a hike to one of the highest points on Skyline drive and it well worth the trip. Make sure you have good shoes on, water and a camera with you. Also plan to stay a short and enjoy it as it is truly awe inspiring.

This is a great hike for the family. It gets a bit steep here and there, but it isn't too bad. There aren't any ledges or cliffs to worry about but it is rocky at the top if you want to climb around on the rocks and see the whole view. It's an amazing view with a lot of places... More

This is one of the easiest hikes to get to from Skyline Drive and well worth the time! The views at the peak of Little Stony Man are amazing and there is a nice area to sit and take in the sights. I have done this hike 4 times and it does get crowded. I haven't experienced a time that... More

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.

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.

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
