HikingGreat!

One of my favorite hikes so far! Great views on the way up, lots of shade, and beautiful overlook at the top. Not too strenuous, and very fun! We did run into a mother black bear and two cubs about 25ft away, but they turned around and went the other way. Keep your eye out.

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.

The trail was gorgeous! We saw a lot of wildlife and the trees and grass were very bright from all the rain we’ve been getting. Trail blazed do turn yellow as you continue towards the camp.

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.

So much fun!! I plan on coming back. Always ppl on the trail with you and it often got blocked up on the more difficult parts. I found the climbing was easy but I noticed shorter people struggled a little more. Having a partner can really help with the climbing.

HikingGreat!

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

I hiked this a few weeks ago...the views were magnificent but the trail was super crowded with people forming lines on some of the key scrambles. Those rock scrambles were hard core and All Trails rated this as hard and it was definitely one of my hardest hikes to date due to the rock scrambling. Get to the parking lot by 7:30 a.m. on weekends during the summer!

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.

This is probably the hardest hike I’ve done since moving here. It’s quite literally 2300ft straight up and then 2300ft straight down. Surprisingly, going down to as the hardest part. At times the trail was hard to follow. Definitely went off trail a bunch both purposefully and unintentionally. All in all I loved this hike. It pushed me. Make sure to pack extra water, as this was the first time I ran out in a long time. Also, start early.

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.

HikingGreat!Rocky

If you do this hike clockwise you won’t hit any water untill you get down to the river, 8.5 miles in, over steep and rocky terrain. We did it counterclockwise and so had the benefit of the river for cooling off and drinking for the first part of the trip. I am not an experienced hiker so I found the length and terrain to be really difficult. We were in over our heads for sure but we are glad we accomplished it. We hiked 4.5 miles day 1, 7 miles day 2, and 5.5 on day 3. Knowing what I know now I would probably like a 12 mile hike over 3 days so that I’m not too exhausted at the end of the day to enjoy the camping part. We had the capacity to carry 3 quarts of water per person and it was barely enough from our last fill up to the end of the hike. A gallon per person would have been much more comfortable. There is no water on the AT part of the trail. You can fill up at the black rock hut about 1 mile or so off the loop further north on the AT but at our pace that would have added at least 2 hours of hard labor to the hike so we decided to make what we had last till we got back to the car. We did this during July so it was hot and sweaty. The river was nice with a few shallow swimming holes, good to cool off in but not deep enough to jump in and swim around. There are several river crossings but at this time of year the water is low enough and we never even got our feet wet. We spent 2 nights hammock camping which was easier than tent camping as there seemed to be very few flat areas to pitch a tent. The trail is well signed and maintained.

completed this one today. the campground parking was closed so i parked at hogback overlook and hiked down tuscarora to the falls. started at 7 and didn’t pass anyone til i was about a mile past the falls. not gonna lie, the hike up beecher with the humidity today was brutal. (i just hiked 2 4k peaks in NH last week so i’m not out of shape). don’t underestimate this one. found a bunch of bear scat, and heard one on the matthews arm link back to tuscarora. it was just under 13miles by my watch. parking lot was jammed and parking all over the road when i returned.
