Great hike! Arrived at Little Stony trailhead early and hiked the 4 mile loop. Took about 2 hours, but I stopped and enjoyed the views at the look outs.

Great hike, we started at the Little Stony Mountain parking area and hiked to the lookout. Up and back was about 3 miles and took us 1:21 minutes. We got to the park early so there was plenty of parking. If you park at the north end you get to pass two lookouts and avoid the crowds hiking in from Skyland.

Great views along the trail. Sort of a shorter trail, but for a short moderate trail, it was one of the better ones. Traffic was fairly heavy however.

Busy hike, mostly from the parking lot up to the peak. Otherwise, not too bad. Great views and photo opportunities!!!
