Cute trail. Made for families and grandparents. Wear your flip flops.

Great gentle trail at less than a mile (out and back) with forrest cover the entire way. Wear your flip-flops or bring the grand parents as this paved path has no elevation gain to speak of. The viewing platform at the end opens up a spectacular vista over the valley across to the mountains of Shenandoah National Park. The day we were there featured a large gathering of hawks riding the thermals in front of us. Our kids (4 and 2 1/2) loved it, particularly the rock piles that dot the trail and are easy climbs for kids to scramble around. This is a great little trail if you are into views or have young kids you want to get enthused about being outdoors.

Great trail. Absolutely amazing view.

Take your camera, no hiking boots needed. Sandals preferred. Beautiful Views!

This is such a beautiful drive. The scenes are just magnificent. Its extra beautiful during the fall with all the leaves changing.

Very short walk, easy family hike with a great view.

love this trail

Views were hit and miss over the holiday weekend with the storms, ..but where they were there, very hard to beat anywhere on the east coast.

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

Nice little trail, but it was poorly maintained with branches over the path and a lot of thorns snagging your ankles. Perhaps it will be better taken care of in the more popular months.

Tryin to decide north to sout or visa a versa ?? Any comments

Very leisurely walk that ends up on a great over look of the nearby mountains & forest

My buddy and I took a long weekend and tackled this section of the AT as our first trip. A good amount of diversity among the trail, some awesome views, and a great first hike. Highly recommend!

Such a quick hike with gorgeous views

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

Tackled this section with two friends this past Summer. It was my first intro to the AT and I caught the hiking bug. Came back with some really great stories and desire to do more section hiking in the future.

Beautiful drive any time of year through Shenandoah. Even more so in the fall when the leaves change color. A must-do drive if you live in the area.

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
