Short easy walk to a very beautiful overlook with lots of sandstone, limestone and shale and white pine trees. One of the most beautiful places we visited

Easy, short, and flat. But the view does pay off.

This is an easy paved walk with little elevation change. There are some interesting rocks/boulders along the trail as you pass through a pretty canopy of trees. It's just a short distance until you reach the platform with a gorgeous view of the Shenandoah Valley. It is definitely worth the quick stop if you are in the area (between New Market and Luray).

short very easy trail for kids. we took a side trail to the left of the main trail that was a lot better hike than just walking to the overlook by way of pavement. great view

Very short and easy, I don't know if it even counts as a "hike." The trail is paved and has little elevation change the entire way. The view is fantastic, but it is very populated, so expect to see other people. There are also some small unofficial trails if you have kids/teens that want to be more adventurous, but it's a fairly small area.

Very easy paved trail to a beautiful overview of mountains. No wildlife seen while on trail this year. Last year we saw a black rat snake. Nothing too scary. Kids are both under 11 and love this trail for all the rocks they can climb and get pictures on located on sides of trail. Def recommend for families with children!!

So this trail itself is easy. Easy to find, easy to get to. Very nice view at the end. However, if you're looking for something a bit more fun, a little bit in is a trail heading off the paved path. We followed it all the way up the side of the mountain and found some awesome rock groupings to get some nice pictures and obvious signs that people had camped up there. It was beautiful. That trail was a bit more work heading uphill and around briers and roots. Went in February on a relatively warm day and it was so nice. Went back in April and the briers were a little too overgrown. But will definitely be back come winter.

It was a very short and easy trail. Paved the whole way, which made it very manageable for my two year old. The view at the end was impressive.
