A little crowded at Stony Man overlook, but a nice hike.

Excellent views!

Pretty crowded. Very rocky. With so many leaves on the ground, it made the rocky trail a little treacherous. Very glad we had on hiking boots, but wish we had hiking poles. Views make it worth it!

We went to both Little Stony Man and Stony Man Summit and came back the same way. Nice hike with great views.
