We'll worth it.

Easy hike with very rewarding views. A little crowded unless you get there early in the day. We'll worth a try.

Great short hike to start off with. Family friendly and well marked.Being from Florida we don't get this type of hiking so this was a short and safe beginning.

Fantastic views for a medium level hiking challenge. It will be cooler here than in the valley so where appropriate clothing

I feel almost guilty being rewarded with such an indescribably beautiful view of the Shenandoah valley after a relatively easy 1.6 mile round trip hike with a gentle 340 foot climb to the second highest point in the park. My six year old was able to do it with little effort or complaining. Even he was amazed at the view.... More

The Stony Man mountain Hike is one of the easier hike in Shendoah National park. While the hike itself is easy, the Small peak it takes you to is amazing. The place gives a panoramic view of the mountains and is a great place to click some awesome FB DPs :P

This is an easy hike through beautiful forested land that comes out to a spectacular view. We had the great fortune of catching a guided tour and loved the additional information he gave.

Nice trail with a beautiful view when you reach the rocks. On our decent we saw a bear in the distance near the trail. Since our footsteps made plenty of noise on the crushed rock trail the bear noticed us too and slowly made his way back farther into the woods.

Stony Man was a pretty easy hike with a great view! It would definitely be doable with children and is worth the time!

As other commentators have mentioned, the hike is well marked and easy, pleasant woodland walk. The end is a bit of an incline whice opens up into a nice stony area with great views of the valley below and surrounding mountains. A little hazy due to pollution in this part of the world but great view and fun to climb... More

This hike is in my top three for sure- All in all its an easy/moderate hike, as there are a few extended climbs but none of them are terribly difficult. The trail surface is pretty even in many areas and there's a nice combo of shady verdant woods and absolutely breathtaking views. There wasn't too many people, and both cliff... More
