Completed Hikes Map

Great hike but you won't be able to find much isolation during weekend days. Very popular and accessible so you will have a lot of company. Probably one of the most scenic trails on the East Coast. Overnight camping should be included in your plans. Sunset and sunrise experiences are a must. Be prepared for damp weather, frequently encountered.

Beautiful hike..very peaceful!!

Amazing!! One of my favorite places to hike

Amazing views! Highly recommended!! Do the whole loop and you’ll see how different the landscape can be on top of vs. base of the mountain. Pick your poison: traveling counter-clockwise will mean wide uneven steps going down and standard wooden stairs going up, clockwise gives you the uneven stairs going up and wooden down. Any way you slice it LOTS of stairs. Strenuous at some points. Took us 3 hours with dogs.

short hike but enough to make you sweat due elevation! the view on top was great! glad me and my kids did this hike.watch out for the cliff.

Hiked it with my family today. it is OPEN.
it was a great time we did the loop.

Beautiful trail and beautiful waterfall. Peaceful.

Hiked Wolf, Cedar and lower Stone Mtn trails. Visited Hutchison Homestead having lunch with our hiking group. Trails, stairs and parking lots are well maintained. Enjoyed the sounds of babalying water in creeks by trails. View from Wolf tr as il of Stone Mtn summit is awesome.

Watch for deer crossing road when driving in and out of park.

An ok hike but nothing really stands out.

Awesome trail! Allowed us to get out of the car for a couple hours and stretch our legs on the 11 hour drive home from Myrtle Beach to Northeast Ohio. It was a bit crowded but the trail itself was challenging and fun! Hidden gem in NC!

I’m afraid I’ve ruined all other North Carolina hikes! This was my first overnight backpacking hike and a perfect trip! The sunset views were incredible. It rained on us overnight and we woke up in a cloud so we missed sunrise and will have to go back. By far the most beautiful place I have been on the East Coast!

Fun trail for young kids.

Cool short hikes to scenic falls

Always a fun day hike with pets and friends!

Incredible day today on this trail! A little crowded at first, but just like everyone said, the further you go, the more the crowd thins out. Rewarding views with each step!

Great views, historic scene, cool waterfall and just strenuous enough.

Amazing view

It’s ok. View is good but this trail is extremely crowded and is honestly a gravel road a lot of the way. If you do this one I would not do it on the weekend or expect a huge crowd.

Good hike for kids and adults both!

This is a nice easy trail with a great view once you get to Big Pinnacle. The trailhead is located conveniently just behind the Grayson Highlands Visitors Center.

Fairly easy trail. It is unique and has a very good view of the surrounding area.

My friends and I completed this hike in May. It takes you to a beautiful overlook. You will not see much on the hike up, but since it’s a relatively short hike, the view is absolutely worth it. We went early and had the overlook to ourselves for some time.

Been hiking here for years! Beautiful views from up top!

Great family hike if it’s not the first time your kids are going to hit the trail. For perspective, our boys have hiked all of Stone, Grayson, and Crowders and are 8, 5, and 3: we didn’t have any issues. 8 year old breezed through, and it was just enough to push the 5 year old and make him feel like he really accomplished something. Packed the 3 year old on my back.

We started at around 10:45 and told the kids we would break at Jane Bald (the 2nd of the 3 balds on this trail). It was a good stopping point as most of the rigor in this trail lies between Jane and Grassy Balds.

The views are wonderful and are right up there (if not better than) the views at Grayson Highlands. Lots of great rock outcroppings which make for fun obstacle courses for the kids. It is a balds hike, so bring your sunscreen.

Bottom line: if all you’ve got is an ergo baby and this is your kids’ first foray into hiking, there are better starter routes that are less demanding but still fun. But if they’ve got a few reps under their belt, this is a trail that everyone in the family can really enjoy.

Amazing scenery! Many different species of plants. I think we saw 3 different species of goldenrod alone. Azaleas and blueberry plants were awesome.

I’ve done this trail a couple times and it has amazing views. The first time there was only a couple people on the trial, but this last time the trail was packed ( it was also a holiday weekend). The trail is well kept and easy to follow. This last time I took my 4 year old up it and it took about an hour each way with his little feet.

great day hike from fine camping facilities. compared to numerous other parks' ratings, this one is strenuous if you do the loop - moderate if you do up & back from upper parking lot.

Beautiful hike that I almost passed up on. The ranger talked me into doing it. Great views! A LOT of wind up on the peak and so very quiet down in the woods. Don't pass this up. It's worth doing.

Trail is fairly steep at the beginning and has many stairs both up and down the trail. Overall a fun hike with and old settlement area to explore, and great views along the top.

Not even hiking. It's just really good walking track. The view on the summit is amazing :)
