Great view at the end. Also takes you past an abandoned copper mine. It is a pretty cool trail.

This is a very easy, brief hike to the summit with a breathtaking view as the reward. After I reached the peak of Stony Man I came down and took a short excursion to the summit of Little Stony Man, where the view was almost as great. It waa maybe 3+ miles total to go to both summits.
