Devil's Marbleyard and Gunter's Ridge Loop Trail is a 10.2 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Natural Bridge Station, Virginia that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This hike also has about a 3 mile out and back on the Appalachian Trail that goes to a spectacular 360 degree view.
This loop is not marked, and people should know this before beginning this venture. It was a long walk on a path that you will make on your own. Very fun if this is your sort of thing. Bring extra water, its slow moving in many areas. You will cross the stream several times as you make your way down the side of the mountain. I would not recommend this for a beginner or someone without a map or gps. If you just want to do the marble yard, do the out and and back..
Climb your way to the top!
Great hike for exploring where others don't go
