Short but sweet. The stony man summit is really beautiful. The view is just mesmerizing. Easy enough to hike with children. I highly recommend it.

Very pleasant hike, easy walking without too much elevation change. The view is spectacular however it was quite humid the day we were there so visibility wasn’t the greatest.

My Wolfpack and I conquered this trail... The river runs down beside the trail the entire way to the waterfall, are you strong enough to join my Wolfpack?

Best view you will see in North Carolina!! Relatively easy hike with a huge payoff. Highly recommended.

we went there with a 6 yr old and it was easy. The view from the summit is really breath taking. worth it. it took us close to 1hr 15 mins to complete.

In every season this trail is absolutely stunning. I enjoy this trail the most during Autumn season.

The end of the trail at the peak of the mountain makes the hike completely worth it! It's a gorgeous 360° view.

Did this with my daughter on my back. She weighs 34 lbs so it was a little more difficult. the trail is rocky at times. very steady incline untill you cross the fire road towards the end. this is where the trail begins to be more of an incline. i believe this is where most of the challenge is. the air gets thinner a little bit. the scenery at this point is amazing. once you get to the top there are multiple ledges to grab a great view from. on the way back if you take the fire road it is much simpler and easy. very wide path and still some great scenery. not to crowded if you hit it in the early am.

I went through on a Monday morning around 6:30 am. No one around until I was on my way out. Nice loop. Beautiful scenery and sounds of the falls.

well traveled hike. a lot of foot traffic. easy down. moderate up.

Amazing trail! Very rewarding with the views on the summit. Recommended.

This is such a beautiful hike. Its fun going down it and it only takes like 15-20mins but once you’re ready to head back up its a bit of a climb. However it is really beautiful. The water fall goes all the way to the bottom right before the Rose River trail starts. Its a must see.

Great hike not for beginners it's up up all the way! But the 360 panoramic view is amazing.

The hike up is short but if wet (as it was for us) it would be slippery coming back down. We elected to take the alternate route back. It is worth the detour. Beautiful hike in the woods crisscrossing several streams. The view from humpback is awesome! It was a bit crowded but nothing unusual for other good hikes in August.

Beautiful hike, lots of rain the last couple of weeks so the falls were roaring. Moderate is an accurate assessment. Hiked it with my wife and our two granddaughters. Girls complained a little but not to much which rates this as a good family hike. will differently hike it again when in the area.

Great hike. Be prepared for. Rocky path.

Great hike for young children. Trail is strenuous but short. Great view at the top.

lovely, well maintained and shaded trail. At almost 66, over-weight and out of shape, I completed the hike. I haven't ever hiked let alone "climbed a mountain" and it definitely wasn't a "cake walk" by any means, but I did it so I imagine anyone could. The view is impressively breath-taking and well worth the hike. Parked at the trail head parking lot and the AllTrails app clocked it at 1 & 3/10ths mile. The last 10th mile was a bit steep, but worth it.

Nice trail, well maintained, and nice views at the top. It was a bit crowded with multi-day hikers, experienced Day hikers, and tourists who don’t hike regularly. I was a little disappointed with the “iconic” aspect of this view — for me it didn’t quite live up to the hype.

This is a great trail that leads to an amazing view! When you see pictures of people standing on a rock ledge in Shenandoah with the mountains behind them, this is the spot. There are a couple of small trails to the left and the right which offer smaller rock overlooks that are equally worth visiting and take about a minute to access. If you want the epic photo, have your hiking partner go to the left trail and snap a picture of you on the main rock crop from the one on the left. You will be glad you did.

The falls are lovely but this is a highly trafficked trail and many people go down this trail to see the falls and struggle hard to get back up. It won’t be a problem If you’re in good shape/hike a lot and it is definitely worth seeing. If you are taking small children, older family members or injured hikers with you, consider going to the lower falls via the horse trail. It is much easier with a pretty flat trail in and out. The lower falls are quite as spectacular but still pretty and much easier to access.

Hiked this with a friend after a week of heavy rain and the falls were incredible! The trail was waterlogged and a little difficult to navigate at points, but overall still a beautiful hike. Crabtree is one of my favorite hikes in central VA.

Very popular trail. Pretty short, I did it in an hour and a half. Good for beginners in good health. The water was very pretty all the way down and there was even a small pool of water at the bottom that you could swim in. Long drive to get to the trail head but there are several other trails to fill in the rest of your day.

Great hike! We did this hike early in the morning. We were above the fog, so visibility was limited. Super easy trail.

Nice trail. It was the only trail we hiked with a packed parking lot. We did this trail after a morning on Marys Rock. The view of the falls from the bottom is really nice (with people everywhere). The trek back up was fine, even after a fall from the day before.

Great trail. We did this trail last month and only saw a few other people hiking it as well. Great views at the top. Added bonus was seeing a black bear on the trail near the parking lot.

great views of the waterfall. well maintained trails.

I’ve biked this beautiful trail many times, some going up from Damascus to White Top and back, but most just down after taking the shuttle up. When taking visitors to this region, most say it’s the highlight of their visit. Even on the hottest summer day, at altitude, you’ll encounter a comfortable shaded cooler trek down, so bring a windbreaker. Lots of photo opportunities on the rocky stream. Enjoy!!
