Great small hike for all ages. The trail is a bit rocky but not steep. The view at the top is great!

This is a great hike for young children, but calling this anything beyond a walk is a definite stretch.

Well maintained trail with great views. Easy to extend your hike as it runs into the AT near the top.

The view was great and worth the hike. The trails aren't very well marked but if you follow the trail back the way you came you should be fine. There is a lower lot right off 7 (free but longer) and one higher off 601 ($3 and short or medium). We took the scenic short route through the woods straight ahead from the parking lot up but we took another way back down that did not lead back to the upper lot...don't make this mistake. Beautiful and worth it!

Short hike (20 min) up to Bear 's Den Overlook on the Appalachian Trail. From the overlook you look across the Shenandoah River into West Virginia out to Winchester. Rocky overlook with sweeping view of the countryside.

We did 2 miles in and 2 miles back to get more of a workout. The views are outstanding from the overlook.

Enjoyable trail to a spectacular view towards the west. I found the hike to be easy while the trail was moderate as it was rocky in some stretches
