I grew up in the valley below Shenandoah National Park, and spent the first 18 years of my life looking up at the craggy peak of Stony Man without every going there. So this summer's three-day visit to Skyland seemed the perfect chance to correct...More

If there is only one hike you can do at Shenandoah National Park, this is the one I would choose. Great views, nice wide trail.

A fairly easy hike that leads to a rocky cliff that has great views. Round trip took us about one hour. Definitely the views are worth it.

This was a easy around 1 mile hike that my family did. I would suggest this to anyone. The trail does have a mainly rocky path so keep this in mind.

The trail is well marked and easy to find. The climb to the top is a gradual incline with only a few dips up and down. About 2/3 of the way to the top, you'll find the path blocked by large boulders. Look over your...More

We started from our lodge @ skyland, which was not far to the trailhead. Total distance ( for a round trip) was 1.6 miles & it took us roughly 1 hr. The view was magnificent even in a cloudy late afternoon.

We had 3 kids, 5 and under. We climbed the rocks at the end, took our time, spent about 1.5 hours.

I don't see why not. As the others pointed out, dress in layers. It was a bit rainy and overcast when I went but it really gave the hike a very cool misty feel. I would definitely avoid ice! Have fun!

The actual trailhead and parking lot is on Skyline Dr. You can use the Thornton Gap entrance that you pick up in Luray, Rt. 211. Once you enter Shenandoah NP, go south on Skyline Dr. Look for the parking area after the... More
