Did this trail with my 17 month old daughter as the first trail she walked on her own. She walked about 0.21m and then went in the carrier (not bad!). It’s a very easy hike with benches along the way. It has beautiful flowers and a lot of wildlife. We saw a deer and a rabbit closeup. Very nice for my daughter to see.

The day we hiked, we only saw a handful of people. A nice walk to the overlook. Beautiful scenery.

Beautiful trail. Only had a short time to explore. Watched a doe cross in front of us. Intended to hike the Pass Mountain trail, but went the wrong direction on the AT trail.

The Stony Man hike is a short and mildly uphill climb to a rocky summit. The rocks at the summit are very uneven and difficult to navigate so people really have to take turns to get out to the edge but the view is great. this is a fast hike in that you can reach the summit in about 20-30 minutes so you can spend more time enjoying the view.

Easy but can find plenty of off trail rock scrambling if you’re up for it. Absolutely beautiful

Easy trail out and back. Wooden bridge, paved trail, and metal landing make this trail an ideal option for the elderly, kids, and individuals who require handicap accessible trails. Gorgeous view of Luray and parts of the valley. There are plenty of side trails and climbs off of the main trail. Also, plenty of spots to sit and rest if needed.

Amazing view! A steel balcony to view mountains from. Nice place to have lunch with steel benches.

Trail head is very close to lodge, big parking lot! Beautiful, easy trail with great views. Extremely busy on at the top!

Great summit view

Nice easy trail with great views.

Took the trail yesterday with my wife. Hiked to Little Stony Man and then up to Stony Man. Wow!! A terrific hike for almost anyone. Met some rock climbers at Little Stony Man and people from all ages and sizes up at the top. Fantastic views. Lots of birds and wildflowers. A not to be missed adventure for all!

Amazing views for an easy trail. Lots of small trails off of the main one, if you wish to explore a little bit. A few other views available to the left and right of the main overlook

A very nice little hike for families with kids. Well traveled. Some folks had dogs, contrary to regulations, but fortunately not too many dogs on the trail. Parking area has about 50 spaces, with 15 or so long enough for a large pickup or van. No space for a trailer/camper, though. Good views of the valley from the top of the loop!

Always a favorite at Shenandoah National park. It is a very easy trail to a beautiful rocky outlook with a few viewpoints. Easy grade. There is a great educational pamphlet you can get for $1 at the base of the hike, it has numbered spots and a bit of trail history and education. This hike is right at skyland’s entrance and is walkable from the cabins and to the restaurant. This hike is lovely all times of the year. Keep an eye on little ones near the rocky outcroppings.

All paved, it was a beautiful way to see Luray. highly recommend for anyone looking for a nice stroll, very accessible

Good tour through the Luray caverns!

My husband & I went up to take a break from the grind and enjoyed it so much we drove back from PA the next day with the kids to have ourselves a sky picnic and a little nap... Couldn't ask for a better experience but bring layers for the wind

So amazing, decided to do it twice... sorta.

Very nice short hike with a great view! One spot was very narrow slightly washed out making it difficult to pass, but added more excitement to the trail. Heavily populated hiking trail so a lot of squeezing pass others.

Nice easy hike for children or the elderly. My 4 year old loves playing on the rocks and exploring around the woods. Amazing view from the overlook.

Super easy! Great for a short, relaxing walk in the woods that ends with a gorgeous view.

Good trail worth the view

could be marked a bit better but overall great for kids and was passable in January, great overlook

The government is shut down right now. We decided to hike up to little stony man overlook with the dogs, and that’s the extent of my rule breaking lol. This trail is easy peesy lemon squeezey, round trip was a total of about 30 minutes, I will definitely be hiking up here again!
