Nice hike to the rock scramble which is the best part. A few very small stream crossings. The trail heading back down from the very top is pretty rough which is my only negative.

This is an easy hike. Kids will love climbing on the rocks. Just watch for snakes. I tried to do the loop but couldn't find the trail where it intersects so I turned around. Be prepared if you try this and attempt to bushwhacked. Parking can be a challenge. Great hike at a unique place.

I started at Stony Fork campground and this hike off the recommendation of a lady at the visitor center on I-77. I should have specified I would like a hike with a view. As far as a tough hike this was definitely a good way to go. I'm sure the views would have been great if not for all the trees. I should have read other reviews or I may not have done this hike just because of the 3 mile walk back on the road.

if you were to take your family or friend to one hike in Virginia I would recommend this one. It's easy and very worthwhile; Half an hour up to the falls. You could meader through the woods the other direction on the way back. Takes an hour, with a quaint overlook, and wind up at the old iron furnace. But just up and back along the falls is very rewarding and easy.

Great view at the top. Totally doable with our 12 year old kids and medium size dog.

Whitetop to Damascus is easy and beautiful. Bring bike tools just in case, I learned the hard way : )

This is a very well maintained trail, and not steep at all. It was raining like crazy when I went, so no one was there. it was really fun running around that place all alone. It's amazing! ❤

One of my favorite trails in Virginia. If you're not too worried about snakes, it's awesome to go out at night in the summer, lay on the warm rocks and watch the stars.
