Easy hike, less than 2 miles round trip. We saw a variety of ages on the trail. Some parts had a slight uphill trek but overall it was a simple and short hike to a beautiful view of the valley.

Gradual incline on this trail made it doable. (We also went on the Hawksbill Summit trail and that was much, much steeper, but the views were worth it!) I would recommend heading to Little Stony Man, too. (It is the other trail that you see at the cement post.) There is a larger area of rocks at Little Stony Man... More

The hike is not too long or too hard. The view is beautiful if the weather is good. The weather will not always cooperate.

Stony Man has a beautiful view from the top. It has been hiked by all ages in our family. All levels of hikers can do it. Just go slow if you must.

This is a "moderate" hike of about 1 mile round trip. The view is beautiful. We were hoping to see a black bear or deer, but we weren't lucky enough. We did see Hawks.

You can take a .4 mile hike to the cliff overlook. A bit uphill but not very difficult. We went on a drizzly and foggy day and lucked out with a break in the mist for amazing views! Under a mile round trip, or you can go on further to the Stony Man.

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.
