Follow 501 North to the Blue Ridge Parkway. From there take a left onto the park way and follow it for about 7 miles then make a right onto Petites Gap rd. (Petites Gap rd. is a single lane dirt/gravel road on the side of a mountain. Be very careful on your way there and back.) The trail head is about 2.7 miles on your right.

Nice hike to the rock scramble which is the best part. A few very small stream crossings. The trail heading back down from the very top is pretty rough which is my only negative.

This is an easy hike. Kids will love climbing on the rocks. Just watch for snakes. I tried to do the loop but couldn't find the trail where it intersects so I turned around. Be prepared if you try this and attempt to bushwhacked. Parking can be a challenge. Great hike at a unique place.

One of my favorite trails in Virginia. If you're not too worried about snakes, it's awesome to go out at night in the summer, lay on the warm rocks and watch the stars.
