Fun short hike, very good for beginners and summit view is such a bargain for the lack of work! Very well maintained trail.

Nice, short, simple hike with a wonderful view at the top. It should be noted that you can only see the sign that indicates the trailhead for Stony Man by turning in to where it says "Skyland." Again - the view!!!

This is a nice little trail that delivers a spectacular view of the valley at the end for only little effort. This trail will always hold a special place in my heart because of the person who introduced it to me.
