Story Book Trail is an out and back trail located near Luray, VA that offers scenic views. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking.
A short walk for a breathtaking view.
Very short and easy, I don't know if it even counts as a "hike." The trail is paved and has little elevation change the entire way. The view is fantastic, but it is very populated, so expect to see other people. There are also some small unofficial trails if you have kids/teens that want to be more adventurous, but it's a fairly small area.
Great hike for kids! Easy and with great views! We loved it!
It's paved and easy.
Very easy paved trail to a beautiful overview of mountains. No wildlife seen while on trail this year. Last year we saw a black rat snake. Nothing too scary. Kids are both under 11 and love this trail for all the rocks they can climb and get pictures on located on sides of trail. Def recommend for families with children!!
So this trail itself is easy. Easy to find, easy to get to. Very nice view at the end. However, if you're looking for something a bit more fun, a little bit in is a trail heading off the paved path. We followed it all the way up the side of the mountain and found some awesome rock groupings to get some nice pictures and obvious signs that people had camped up there. It was beautiful. That trail was a bit more work heading uphill and around briers and roots. Went in February on a relatively warm day and it was so nice. Went back in April and the briers were a little too overgrown. But will definitely be back come winter.
Easy peaceful trail
It was a very short and easy trail. Paved the whole way, which made it very manageable for my two year old. The view at the end was impressive.
