SPECTACULAR trail. Fun, challenging (but not too much) and good to warm you up in the winter. Beautiful views, good climbing, and so much fun. A must do!

Would love to go back during sunset or sunrise. Great views and quiet this time of year.

A really short hike with great views and a cool scramble.

Gorgeous view of the Shenandoah Valley!!! We did it carrying a 25lbs backpack on a 30 degree weather and made it all the way to the “v” point and had a little picnic right on the top with a 360 degree view. Ready for our next trail adventure!

best app for all the trails, deff the best I have had, good job!!!

Hiked it the trail starting out on the drive by Pass Mountain Loop. It was a nice quite trail. I saw the "goat underpass" right next to the Rocky Branch Mile marker. And several small pottery dishes by the spring. Pretty neat.

Nice easy trail! Beautiful at the top!

Just moved to Virginia and wanted a nice first hike in the state, I’m used to doing longer, strenuous hikes in NC so I was worried about this being too easy since it’s a moderate trail. It was actually a great trail with just enough challenge, rocky and ice/snow in February but still beautiful. View is absolutely worth it, I bought a park pass so I can keep exploring this area.

This is a nice trail with a short scramble. The second time I did it, I hung out at the scramble did some bouldering. It is a very busy trail on nice days in the afternoon.

Nice look out but definitely an easy hike.

Loved doing this loop today! Was able to do the summit of both Stony Man and Little Stony Man in one go. Was a bit muddy and there were parts of the trail covered in ice so be mindful if you’re going during the colder months.

Great little hike. We went in October and saw a large deer with huge antlers. The views are beautiful!

Relatively easy trail. Short hike which you could do in the afternoon, even in the winter. Beautiful views at the summit. To the right you get to see Old Rag Mountain, which was awesome!

My favorite trail at Shenandoah.

No fishing spot but a fun hike

My first time back to the Shenandoah’s in more than 20 years and the Mary’s Rock summit did not disappoint. Fun hike, and the view at the top was literally breathtaking. It was possibly a combination of beauty and the fact that the wind chill was -10, but breathtaking nonetheless. A hike my kids would love in the summer. Can’t wait to go back.

Gorgeous! If you are in this area and you do not check this site out, then you’ve missed out!

Great trail. Hiked two weeks ago with 4 inches of snow on the ground. Will hike again in the Spring.

Phenomenal view at summit. Kid-friendly trail with shallow gradient.

short & nice submit

Great hike. Started snowing last weekend on the hike!

Beautiful view, great first hike in Shenandoah!

Awesome hike but be aware there is significant rock scramble! Not a good hike for people who are not very mobile!

Amazing view with a short hike to get there!

I did it today early morning and it was amazing but collapsed rocks are blocking the trail for few meters.

I love this trail. Kid and dog friendly. Easy and great views.

Great trail, lots of rock scrambling. Great views too. Not terribly long, so very good for teenagers.

We absolutely love the views at the summit point of this trail. It’s a quick trail with a few trickier spots to climb if you go the way of the rock scramble. This is always our first go to trail in SNP because of the views.

The wife and I spent a whole weekend hiking Natural Bridge Cedar Creek trail & The Caverns plus Monacan trail then we went to Crabtree Falls. We also hopscotched different trails on Skyline drive. Although this was our shortest trail it was the hardest for me because I have a lot of metal in my foot. The rock scramble was rough on my ankle. Second mistake I made was I had on hiking shoe and not my boots. I did find out there is a easier way. Cross Skyline Drive and climb the stairs up the bank. At the trail post, turn right onto the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) south. Go left on the connector trail, then turn right on Bearfence Loop Trail. You'll see the viewpoint on your right. Retrace your steps to the starting point.

Extremely crowded at the summit with mediocre views
