We hiked as a 10+ mile put and back (as a recommendation from another hiker). Great trail and the views are beautiful from the top. A great reward after the 21 switchbacks to get to the top.

this is not a trail it's just walking along the beach

This trail is beautiful, definitely go in the early morning to avoid a lot of pedestrian traffic. I wouldn't rate this as a hard trail, more moderate.

The Rock scramble was a lot of run. Don't get fooled by the false top. It goes on for awhile. A little aggressive for young children. Hope to come back!

This was a fun hike with varied terrain. The area that had been cleared by a forest fire was interesting to see. There's a highland meadow you walk through, as well as more forested areas, and a lot of rock hopping. In general, it's a very rocky trail, so wear solid footwear with good ankle support; it would be very easy to twist an ankle on this terrain.

There is what I would classify as a very minor "rock scramble," and some very interesting rock formations. There are also some really nice surprise pullouts on the trail, including some excellent camp sites with great views of the Valley. Ultimately, once you climb to the top of the rocks at the end of the trail, you get excellent 360 degree views.

Quick loop that will kick your glutes in gear with the incline that "doesn't stop!" Kidding! Not bad, just some uphill that keeps you working to close the loop!

Easy trail, lovely at this time of year! The leaves were vibrant and contrasted amazingly with the bright blue sky. We started where these directions had us drive to at Rattlesnake point overlook. From there we started on the Appalachian trail and then turned left onto Piney trail, then left on pole bridge link trail, left onto Sugarloaf trail which looped us back to the Appalachian trail and back to our starting point. The trail is pretty clearly marked you just have to remember to keep turning left, therefore completing the loop. But we passed many people so I think others start from another way but we enjoyed this way which brought us downhill and then up to the top of the ridge on the Appalachian trail. The slope is very gradual making this a very simple hike.

This is a beautiful park and like all Virginia State Parks the staff are wonderfull.

Beautiful park with the usual nice staff. Virginia has the nicest rangers and staff, which always adds value to the experience.

Fun hike with beautiful scenery, especially as the trees begin to change! For those who have yet to visit this part of the Shenandoah, be prepared to spend $20 per vehicle to enter the park (the views are worth every penny).
