Great views and easy to get to them! We hiked this late February and the trail conditions weren’t bad. It was a little icy at some parts but easy to get around.

Completed 2/15/20. Quick easy hike. Gravel/rocky throughout. The only ice I saw was in the rocks at the summit. Great views from the top, several spots for good photos and selfies. Bring a face mask or scarf if you plan on spending time at the summit, it was windy and frigid at the top.

This is a fantastic day hike that I would rate as easy/moderate. The trail is a gradual incline and is not strenuous. When you reach the fork, go right. It’s a loop, but going right is a lot less steep than going left! The views at the top at AMAZING! We were lucky to get to enjoy climbing on the two separate rock formations completely my ourselves! There is plenty of parking in the parking lot at the trailhead.

We did this trail on a drizzly, cloudy day so unsure what kind of view we would have. Once out on the rocks though, we were above the clouds and it was an awesome feeling. Wonderful views out over the valley.

This a was a fun hike and rewards you with spectacular views. I took the longer loop starting on the horse trail that takes you on the AT and back to the summit of Stony Man. Definitely recommend it.

great short hike right off the Skyline Drive. Perfect break from driving. Amazing view

This was an awesome hike. Easy-or mostly easy for even for the 3 year old in our party- which caused us to take about 2 hours to complete the loop with a long intermission at the summit. we were awarded with an amazing view on a beatiful November day!

For as easy and accessible the the trail and hike is, the views and rocks are great. Busy trail though but as to be expected.

Short trip. Big Payoff!!

Great hike for sunset. Unfortunately the clouds obscured the color but the view is excellent.

Super easy hike with a big reward! The summit is absolutely stunning. We went to see the sunset and unfortunately the clouds rolled in, but on a clear day it would be breath taking

def rocky all the way. def has a steep. If there could be a in between easy and moderate I'd choose that. great for sunset views. the trail gets narrow as well.
