Nice short hike with a spectacular view. walked up the road afterwards to the Massanutten Trail crossing just to add a bit more hiking time.

HikingGreat!

One of the best trails in the DC/VA/MD area. Large stretches of it are ridgeline, which makes for fabulous views. I took off work and went on a Tuesday, so the crowds were absent (only two other hikes encountered the entire time). There and back, with a stop for lunch, writing, and meditation, and the hike took just under 4 hours

Very pleasant quiet hike, with only a few other hikers on a weekday. Going counterclockwise, the good views are past the signal tower - keep going a few yards for a perfect lunch spot.

HikingGreat!

This is mentioned in several other reviews but it bears repeating - Meadows Lane is a narrow, single, lane dirt / gravel road with several small stream crossings. Be prepared with a suitable vehicle. It also has zero cell service and the trail head is unmarked. We used google maps as linked from the All Trails app and it told us when we arrived. After several miles on Meadows Ln, the road will turn left and see a campsite on your right. Immediately past this campsite there is a more rugged fire road that starts by crossing a stream. That's your trail. We parked right on the side. There is very limited parking. Again, its completely unmarked. About 1/2 mile in you will come to a trail crossing, take the sharp right turn and head up following the white blazes. From there the trail is easy to follow and surprisingly well maintained. I went with two teenage boys and our dog. Its a great trail, with some loose rocks and occasional steep inclines. We went on a cool foggy Tuesday. We saw almost no one coming up from this side and spent most of our time at the top alone. Visibility was limited but it was lovely to watch the fog roll through the valley below us.

Beautiful hike. Easy going at first, then the climb up a rocky trail to the ridge, then a generally casual walk through boulder fields & rock strewn paths along the ridge top. Saw two Bald Eagles and a Red Headed Woodpecker. Quiet and peaceful. Parking area had max if 4 cars including ours on a Tuesday during peak fall colors.

Beautiful. Had the morning off and decided to see how far I could get. To the first vista trail is pretty easy. From the parking lot to the first vista took me 40 min walking at a moderate pace. After that it gets rocky and you'll want to be more careful.

Too cloudy to see the view and couldn’t find the plane wreckage but it was a great hike!

Fantastic trail. Hiked it about two hours after the rain stopped. There was less mud than I expected! Extremely well marked and very pretty.

Make sure to prepare if you are not overly fit! I had a hard time a few months ago when I hadn’t worked out in what felt like a century. It is a beautiful hike and an amazing view at the top!

Beautiful moderately hard trail and the views would have been amazing if it wasn’t raining. Still fun even in the rain. Not a technical hike, just lots of rocks.

Once you find parking for the trailhead from Meadows Lane the hike is enjoyable, but might be long and a little tough for younger kids. The route is not signed from Meadows Lane; however, several others were attempting the hike from this location when I went.

One of our favorite hikes with our family’s. It’s not too long and not a hard hike at all! The very beginning is a bit rocky — take your time and use a walking stick to help navigate that area down and back, but likely won’t need it for much else. My kiddos are 7, 9 & 14 and all do well with this hike. 1/2-3/4 way there is a nice overlook with quite a few areas to sit and enjoy the view. (Not much parking off road but you can park in grass behind parking area if needed - I’d say you can get 2-3 cars in grassy area). This is the trail across from the parking area not on the same side.

Hiking

Took my 3 kids (elementary- high school age) I would say this should be “easy’ish” — I agree with others - if you want to get the steep part of first take the left trail to start. My only thing was for my 7yr old small legs, some of it was a tad steep in the beginning and it was a bit rocky and overgrown (we went in August when it was a bit more grown up). It took us about 2.5-3.0 hr to do the whole loop with a few stops 1- the plane clash (not marked - just a small spot uphill to the right about 1/2 way) 2- we took the extra .10-.15 to the overlook and enjoyed the view (the only one on the bike) 3- a couple breaks for the kiddos to drink water or play with bugs they found. All in all it was a great hike!!

Humpback is super crowded but Dobie was manageable. The Glass overlook was truly beautiful and the leaves were peaking. Lovely day.

Drove this trail on 10/24/2020, very beautiful fall leaves. Very doable by any 4x4, no hard spots. We connected to FR 85-2, which was less maintained, but still doable in a stock Frontier crew cab. Loved them!

Easy trail, beautiful trees and a fab view. Too bad so many kids on a school trip at the overlook but we enjoyed it nonetheless
