I’m out of shape but this wasn’t too bad. The views at the cliff were spectacular.

Fantastic easy hike with great views. The trail head is right after mile marker 39. It’s a small lot with room for only four/five parking spots. This is a great hike for all skill levels. When you reach the first intersection, turn left onto the Appalachian Trail. At the next intersection, continue straight for a quick overlook or turn left to head to the Little Stony Man Cliffs.

great trail! short easy hike to the stony man view point. i took my 8 yr old son and 6 yr old niece, and we hiked to the viewpoint with no problem. beyond the viewpoint, the trail gets pretty narrow in some spots as well as pretty rocky. the kids enjoyed climbing the natural rock walls. we ended up turning around when the trail became to rocky and narrow for them to navigate. if i'd been by myself or with other adults, i wouldn't have felt the need to turn around. will definitely be returning!

Short and relatively easy trail to some of the best views in VA! Three different sections of the trail each provide multiple breathtaking overlooks - Little Stony Man Viewpoint, Little Stony Man Cliffs, and Little Stony Man Summit.

We did a rock climbing expedition to Little Stony Man cliffs. It was very cool.
