Great trail with a good quick elevation climb. The weather can change quickly and conditions can be challenging when this happens. Be prepared for sleet, snow, fog, or if you’re lucky, a fantastic view. Definitely worth your time.

very crowded. can get muddy but worth the views. be careful of rock slides. we heard rocks falling from the big rock face cliff, of course people shouting wasn't helping.

Really enjoyed this hike. I love that their are lots of different trails so that you can see Oldman Storr from different view points. You can also wonder off the trails and do your own thing. We wondered far enough away from the others visiting Storr so that we could take our drone out. It's absolutely beautiful here. We arrived at about 1pm and the parking lot was full, but to be fair that parking lot holds maybe 10 cars. So people were parking along the road. There were also quite a few people there when we arrived, but once you get further up the path, people go their own way and it feels like you're the only one there.

Fantastic views of some of the oldest rock in the world!! Get there early though as this place is crazy busy!! You'll see why as the view is outstanding!! Word of warning.....please wear appropriate footwear....mud, rock, sandals and ankles dont get on very well.

Somewhat steep trail with amazing views the entire way up. As with most popular trails, it does get crowded, so get there early. Also, “early” is not that early on Skye. We arrived at about 8:30 am and were some of the first people on the trail.

Great hike even if the weather wasn't so nice with us (rain and strong wind). But the view is worth the effort !
We made it with two little childs of 6 and 3 years old !
The path is fine and different ways can be taken.

A nice, open walk with great views of the unique geological formations. The climb can be strenuous in parts and the trip to the old man takes about an hour in each direction.
The only downside is it can be quite crowded.

Fantastic views. The trail is not difficult, but due to wet ground, rain, wind, and generally cold conditions it becomes more difficult. Personally that made it more rewarding and enjoyable however. I wore trail shoes, but would recommend your hiking boots as you will be slogging through some muck after the halfway point. Warm clothes and rain gear are a necessity.

Finishes with one of the best views I have ever seen.

Gorgeous bike with breathtaking views. Decently hard during a rainstorm, I imagine it would be moderate / easier in better conditions.
