This trail was a lot of fun, Mom was under the weather so I took the boys for a little adventure. This was a perfect trail for my young hikers we picked up a trail guide at the trail head and made it a learning experience following the trail markers and reading the descriptions along the way. The summit was slammed pack full of people so we noticed a small path off to the left just before you rech the summit that opened up to an alternative summit that we were able to enjoy by ourselves. I would definitely say this is a simple family hike.

Awesome vistas on a very well marked trail! Be sure to do the Stony Mountain Summit as well as the Passamaquoddy Trail... you might see some rock climbers along the way...

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.
