We hiked the Stony Man Trail in Shenandoh on Scenic Drive on Oct. 3rd, 2014. It had just rained so it was foggy in areas. We didn't get the full view, only glimpses, but it was still pretty, colorful, and worth our time. We sat on the rocks and ate lunch. The trail is easy and lovely and a good... More

Did the 10am hike on Sunday 10/5 and Emily was so sweet and exceptionally knowledgeable about the area and history it was even better than we had expected. The views were wonderful & the hike itself is not too challenging. I would highly recommend this hike.

We had a great time here. We had two teenage boys and two 70 somethings. The view is excellent. Also visit the Skyland area.

Ok, if you like hiking this is one you will enjoy and its not that tough. Just under 3 miles its a great way to start the day and then go about your business in this area of Virginia. Do a little sight seeing and shopping afterwards then grab some lunch. Pack water and take a camera or your phone... More

Stony Man has at least 3 hiking paths from the lot we parked in. I hiked "B" last Saturday with 4 adults and 2 kids under 10. It took us about 90 minutes to complete the hike. There is an incredible vista half way through the hike with amazing views. Rock climbers were going up and down the face of... More

We hiked the 3.4 mile loop hike that started and ended at Skyland. Since it was Saturday on a busy fall weekend, the trail was quite crowded. There are fabulous views from the cliffs. It's also a great place for rock climbing.

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.

This is one of the hikes we did. It was nice. Not to big but yet just big enough. We got to see a lot of wild life.

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.
