Great Trail! The incline is a little steep on the way up. Beautiful views. My 10 year old did it easily. Start early in the morning or later in the evening. Mid-days are crowded.

Visited the park about a year ago. Forgot to add this one to the list. Nice hike to a waterfall.

HikingGreat!

We loved this trail. It is an easy trail that ends with a moderate scramble that our 8 year old could accomplish with no issues. The views are gorgeous and the trail is well maintained. We connected from this trail to the Jones Falls trail and ended up hiking almost ten miles total, but because the trails are moderate our 8 year old had no problem doing the hike. The Falls are beautiful but make sure you go all the way down for the full majestic view. Watch out for snakes! We encountered two snakes and a black bear on the trail. Also the trails were heavily trafficked so make sure you have a mask handy as some sections are narrow.

Did this in conjunction with Little Devils Stairs, overall it was a good trail for an extra workout, but the views were nothing you couldn't get from Skyline drive and the trail was fairly crowded on a weekday. Good trail if you're just looking to get out for something short and to get your heart pumping, but nothing special.

hit this one on a misting and foggy day, couldn't see a dang thing at the top but it was still worth it, since it was a short hike. it was actually kinda nice at the top. probably even better on a clear day

Beautiful hike but slow going. It was extremely crowded this weekend so go early but it is very slick with all the rain. Take your time if you do go but I'd hold off for a dryer day this week. It is steep coming back up but I found up to be easier going than down due to the slick rocks.

HikingGreat!

Parked at the little stony man parking lot. After the first 0.3 miles or so, we turned left (clockwise) on the white trail (Appalachian trail). The lookouts were wonderful on a clear day. Keep in mind that pets are not allowed on the trail spur leading to the stony man point lookout. We continued on the white and blue trail past this junction and turned right on the yellow trail to complete the loop. Moderately busy on a Sunday afternoon with most people without masks but practicing social distancing.

HikingGreat!Rocky

A great 5.5 mi hike when you do the whole loop and the out and back to the waterfall. We were a group of 6 with two septuagenarians, a 7 yo and 10 yo. Took us 3 hours of moving time (2.1 mph). Probably more like 5 either stops. The other reviews saying the hike to the bottom of the waterfall being well worth it were totally true. I’d go so far as to say that the hike isn’t really worth it without the stop to the bottom of the waterfall. We got lucky and we’re the only ones there for 30 mins. But then two big groups came and it took the magic (and safety—covid) away so we left happy that we’d had so much time to ourselves. We preferred going CCW because the other half of the loop, while uphill and slightly longer, was less rocky for our tired legs. One note, our GPS had significantly longer mileage than what’s posted here and on the trail markers. So be conservative in your estimates.

very nice scenic trail. we did it clockwise which was very nice because the scenery was all on the tail end of the trail. mostly downhill the first half and then all up hill the second half. great sights and beautiful waterfall.

HikingGreat!

Great trail but the route we took was not exactly the same. This is what we recommend. Start at conference center parking lot and do not take nature trail. Jump on AT at far end of parking lot and go left. Just before you get to street there is a trail marker and you should take a right there. Follow that around until you get back to AT and make a right onto trail. Follow AT until the Stony Mountain short loop hike and make right following blue markers. When done with overlook, take the yellow trail which will meander into the AT and hang a right. Parking lot is about 200 yards on your left.

It was sweet. Get there early because after twelve the whole neighborhood arrives. Lol. Other than that absolutely loved the hike and water

Great trail, the waterfalls (especially the second one) can be a little tricky to access so you’ll definitely want your good hiking shoes. Uphill all the way back out so excellent for cardio and there’s an overlook maybe 200ft from the parking lot for the perfect post-hike view. Side note: This may be a seasonal attribute, but the rocks and trees near the water were absolutely COATED in millipedes I don’t recall seeing in March. So if you have a bug-sensitive hiking buddy you might want to consider another trail.

HikingGreat!

Started at Jones run parking lot Went clockwise on this trail. Easy and downhill to the 2 Doyle river falls and then some uphill going into Jones run falls. Final section is somewhat steep. Total of 4 hour hike with kids and dog. Moderate traffic on a Saturday

Very easy loop trail, handicap or child in stroller accessible. Nice walk thru the woods, where the old hemlocks used to stand. Saw 3 whitetail deer one actually on trail 2 others right off to the side, nice trail to do after doing some harder trails

awesome little hike, a few spots where the terrain was a bit rough. definitely should go counter clockwise, the elevation change is better. great view at the top but definitely a busy spot. parking is limited but we got a spot even at noon.

great hike with great views of the falls. we also added dark hallow falls which was amazing worth the .2 mile detour.

Highly recommended! Completed this hike on a cool June day. We began to the right, which serves as a wide rocky road, down the hill. The highlights are the two waterfalls- the Dark Hallows Falls and Rose River Falls, and an extended period where the trails runs parallel to the river, with dozens of small waterfalls and beautiful views. It is longer than listed- around 4.5 miles.
