Overall, we like everything and have nothing to complain about. The scenery is unbeatable, the service great. A wonderful place to come and unwind.

Beautiful view from the summit on a pleasant day in August. The hike was good not too tiring. Definitely worth the hike to see the view from the top, the mountains looked like as though the were stacked one behind the other. The landscape had varied colors and was pleasing for the eyes but would have preferred a less hazy... More

Unfortunately we went on a cloudy day, but the views were still incredible. My two teen boys clambered up the hills with no problem, while my husband and I huffed and puffed a bit. But when we got to the top we forgot all of that and just enjoyed the view. Plenty of photo ops. Its pretty dangerous up there... More

A great trail for seeing a wonderful view at the end and feeling the forest along the way. Not too ambitious but long enough to feel it a good hike.

Nice pleasant hike to an amazing summit. Easy for anyone, any age as long as you can walk. Our teens loved the view & also enjoyed the points of interest along the way. Pay the dollar for the trail guide booklet. It adds history & nature to the hike.

The hike is easy. We saw everyone from little kids to retired folks hiking this trail. I think it's like a 1.6 mile roundtrip. And it takes you to the best view I saw during my entire trip on Skyline Drive. This hike is totally worth it!

Visited Luray Caverns earlier in the day and had enough daylight to head over to Stony Man Mountain for a hike. Our hiking guide indicated this would be a good hike for the young and young-at-heart. We had a blast hiking up the mountain and met a gentleman who was hiking the length of the Appalachian Trail. The most difficult... More

First family hike! Was just perfect. Ages 11,14,15. Had a great time. The views were great. Took us 2 hours from parking lot & back. Met some really nice people along the trail.

Don't let the classification of nature trail dissuade you from this hike. Both the summit trail and the cliff hike are beautiful hikes with outstanding lookouts over the Shenandoah valley. Both are accessible from the Stoneyman point of entrance and can be done together. We did these trails in stead of Rose River Falls on an iffy weather day and... More

Views views and more views. This is a 4.7 mile trial and is rated as a 1 which is easy. I’m in good shape and thought that it was a 2 and there are places were a walking stick or pole will come in handy. Figure on 3+ hours. Go an enjoy the Shenandoah Park.
