Really fun with 2 young kids.

Full disclosure: We hiked with a 5 yo and 8yo. They were both troopers and killed it. But it was a serious hike for my two girls. The 8yo was totally spent. The 5yo was tired but loved it. Frequent breaks and snacks were key. Also key was finding a good walking stick for them. The falls were not spectacular, but if you want to be a little adventurous you can climb a bit to the falls and see it up close. Overall, a decent trail.

great trail id have to say its a jeep specific trail but yes i would definitely go back

Great hike, not very steep at all.
pretty clear and wide path most the way. I wanna go back in the winter when there's snow on the ground!

My family hiked this trail on our way back to White Oak campground in a circuit that included the Tobacco House Ridge trail and Blue Suck Falls Trail. In all we hiked 5 miles total. The trails in Douthat State Park are very well maintained. My only complaint is that some of the signs were a bit confusing. Be sure to take the park trails map with you. See the picture of the confusing sign we encountered on our hike.

My wife and I hiked the Stony Man Summit trail on our trip to Skyland for our Anniversary. It was a great hike for our first "mountain" hike! The view at the top was incredible! At the fork at the loop, we chose the right-side path, which was a lot rockier and steeper than the left-side path; although it wasn't steep enough to be considered anything harder than we could take.

Excellent hike for what we needed!!

wanted to see how fast I could finish the loop. Completed the whole loop in 6 hours and 30 minutes. I kept a consistent pace throughout only stopping for some brief scenic breaks which I also used as my snack/Water intake. Booked it down the mountain side, and took long strides coming back up Mau-Har.

For me liquid calories were essential to stay steady climbing back up Mau-Har. Over all ending at meadow mountain to wrap things up felt amazing and it was well worth the pace and effort. i plan on doing this loop again very soon.

Best little hideaway. Easy family friendly hike! Came here for a quick weekend hike. Love!

Easy hikes. Kid and dog friendly.

Easy trial. Kid and dog friendly. Nice small lake with paddle boats. During the summer there is a ice cream shack.
