Very unique hike! The rocks can be pretty slippery in spots so wear good shoes. Saw two other people on today’s winter hike. We completed it just under 3.5 hours with a quick lunch.

Simply Beautiful. Don’t miss it

great trail to spend 3 hrs on. I drive from richmond area, this is my second time here which I go solo. if your stock and you plan on going, go at least 4-5 days after a rain pour or you risk getting stuck in the pools at the top.

On my last run, I found an f150 stuck in the puddle, he was stuck there for 3 hours before I arrived. after pulling him out, his truck started having problems and it eventually stopped working. I had to pull him out for several miles back down to blue ridge.

Always be prepared, have food/water/warmth if you plan on being adventurous and you go out there on your own, never know when your going to get stuck, that trail doesnt see a lot of traffic so youd be stuck for at least a day.

8-17, One of the best east coast hikes. The overlook is so picturesque and emblematic of VA’s AT. We went on a very clear afternoon. Lots of climbing but well worth it. Took us about 4 hours.

Great trail, a lot of fun! The first section is relatively easy, and follows a little stream which can attract some wildlife. The last .7 or so is a bit of a rock scramble, but nothing super difficult by any means. Those with mobility issues may have some issues, but we saw small children and even a dog who seemed to handle it okay. We went mid-week in mid-to-late November and only only a handful of others on the trail, so can only speak to the few we encountered. Views at the top are spectacular, especially if you can scale the “tooth” at the end! Only downside was there were a few downed trees that you needed to work around.

The hike is actually 4.2 to the Overlook..take the AT to the Knob, better trail but I took the fire trail down to Rt 311 parking lot.. total trail was a 8.6 mile loop. Both trails lead to the outlook trail inlet
Definitely worth the seeing this on a sunny day you can see mountains for miles.

This hike was a bucket list one for me and it did not disappoint. The last mile or so is the hardest but the view is one of the greatest i have ever seen. Me and a buddy at lunch there on one of the quieter spots on the cliffs just did not want to leave.

Virginia moderate is way different from Indiana moderate but it was worth the challenge and was a great hike

Well traveled loop, save your energy for the stretch to the top!

Made a loop out of this hike by taken Dragon Tooth Trail, returning AT and back to Dragon Tooth Trail via Boy Scott Trail (not marked in AllTrails but visible on site map and well blazed). Roughly the same miles if we took Dragon Tooth up and back. High traffic, steep inclines, multiple switchbacks and several rock scrambles. Views at the top of summit were beautiful, end of October... leaves changing. AT trail was active and follows the ridgeline with a few overlooks... valleys on both sides. The Dragon Tooth Summit ridge was exposed, great views even if you don’t scramble to the very top. But if you need time to climb, high traffic may be unsettling. Great hike!

The first part of the trail was fairly easy. It gets a lil hairy the last .7 miles to the tooth. I did it on a Tuesday in November at 8am. Only complaint is the trail had several fallen tree and brush obstructions. But it was still manageable. And the views at the top were positively Rad.

A truly pleasant hike with outstanding views.

Great hike with fantastic views. Lots of obstacles to go over and under as well as many rocks to climb.

Was super icy from this week’s ice/snow storm which made it a bit more difficult but also made the scenery amazing. Fun hike with incredible views.

I hiked this on 11/12/18 and despite being rather overcast, the views were still stunning at the summit. I spent the night in the parking lot and started out at sunrise. This was a great hike, and a truly rewarding experience. Leaves and some sprinkling rain made parts rather slippery, but was all to be expected in mid-November.

this was easy for the first 1.7 miles, the last bit was a thrilling adventure. lots of climbing and lots of rocks. incredible qnd fun

We did this hike with our dog last weekend and it was amazing! We got there at 7:30 am on Saturday and got the last actual parking spot in the lot, so definitely get there early. We did the trail up and the fire road back. Trail is definitely more difficult but it’s fun for the way up. The views at the top are absolutely amazing and definitely worth it!

Fun trail with beautiful views! I recommend getting to the summit just before sunset to view massanutten in it's blueish silhouette glory.

Beautiful views. We took the fire road up and back. Overall took just under 4 hours with breaks and time at the summit. Very crowded in the parking lot, so make sure you get there early so you don’t have to park on the side of the road and get a ticket as I saw others getting.

Good hike for a day trip. We took the fire road up and down because it was easier. I overpacked and should have only carried extra water snacks/food, and layers of clothes. It took is 3 hours or so up and back. Rested at the top for an hour. Beautiful views from the top. The rest of the route had limited views. I got a parking ticket for parking on the side of the highway since the lot was full ($15 fine). Pretty crowded on the trail.

well maintained trail with easy access from the parking lot. Took about 2 hours each way with minimal difficulty and plenty of photographs. The ridge above the main trail is worth walking. Once you make it to the overlook you won't be disappointed even in foggy conditions!

Loved it! I went for a sunset hike in October during peak foliage and it was beautiful! Lots of pretty scenery and rock formations to climb on. Sunrise would be better because the rock at the top faces east. But still super incredible!

My Husband and did this hike yesterday. Though you can hike under a mile to the summit, we decided to do the loop. Which I’m glad we did...it allowed us to be away from people and to absorb nature. I’m happy I used AllTrails because the trail/tree markings weren’t the best and we went off the loop trail a few times. (Another adventure so we didn’t mind). The trail was rocky but it was a lot of fun. There are different lookouts in the the loop trail that were intimate and quiet. When we hiked to the first lookout (lower rock lookout) a bunch of people emerged from the opposite direction. They ran in front of us and started posing for pictures. The top rocky view (not summit) was the best lookout of the entire hike. It’s priceless and you won’t regret it. Very rocky though. The summit view wasn’t my favorite of this hike. The touristy “hikers” ruined some of natural components of the view by taking countless Instagram pics. Definitely a great hike, suggest hiking it week days to avoid rude people and to hike the loop to enjoy some downtime with nature.

hiked up late on Friday. The clouds blocked our view. Camped near Cambell shelter, braved the rain, wind and cold weather and a much better view in the morning.

Didn’t get a chance to do the trail. Cops were ticketing everyone that wasn’t in the parking lot. Going right down the line with tickets. Be careful where you park. Guess I have to find another hike now.

Beautiful hike but we couldn’t make it to the falls as the trail was washed away and required cliff scaling. With 3 young kids and a dog it was impossible. Hope it gets fixed!

Dogs are allowed on the AT and other trails but they are NOT allowed on the trail to stony man.... which makes this loop mediocre at best.

Nice hike along water down to an overlook with a view of a waterfall. Many people hike down to the overlook and back the same way, but the loop was a less gradual/strenuous walk — even if it was a bit longer.

This is a beautiful hike. Most of the trail is along streams and the waterfalls are awesome! If you do the whole loop I wouldn’t recommend small children. Also, wear hiking boots or waterproof boots. The whole loop is an all day hike.

Breathtaking views! Worth the mud and narrow parts of the trail. Steady hike but could use more trail markings.

Difficult hike but the view was worth the work!!
