on Fairy Stone Loop Trail

It’s important to mention that this is a trail someone mapped out on their own, on All Trails, it is a combination of the Beach Trail and Little Mountain Trail. Once on the trails, they’re nicely marked and distinguished. Because it seems we hike every trail backwards, by accident, it’s also important to mention that hiking this trail clockwise (heading towards the over look and then to The waterfall) is probably easier. Going counter clockwise isn’t super difficult, it’s just a steady incline for a longer period of time.
Beautiful views at the lookout.

Nice trail

This is part of the Stuart's Knob Trail System in Fairy Stone State Park...not private property as listed here. This trail exceeded my expectations. There are several switchbacks with some elevation change for a short loop. You pass a couple old mine entrances (you need to take a short spur to get to one). The scenery is pretty, especially with some fall color remaining in the trees. There is also a very nice view looking down over the lake and the beach area. You can extend the hike by including the Stuart's Knob or Whiskey Run Trails, and there is plenty of room to park at the trailhead.

A very family-friendly state park with several nice trails and a lot to do and explore. We will need to come back in the summer with the kids to take full advantage of it. This was initially a general entry for the park trails. More trails have since been added to the database.

Amazing Park! Camped for a weekend. Campground was small and private. Fished, swam in beached area with a "Lilly pad" filled with kid friendly floats anchored to beach. Trails were beautiful with water. Overall great experience and many plans to return.

Beautiful lake located in Ferrum near the park. Secluded and undeveloped I will go back a bring my kayak. Fairy stone is nice and would be a good place for kids to hike and look for fairy stones.

A great park for family camping. The lake is a great place to swim and play in the summer. Campsites are well maintained and in close proximity to a bath house. The bath house was clean and well lit.

Campsites have a picnic table, fire ring with grate, and flat tent pad. There are RV spots with all the appropriate hook ups as well.

Trail was in good shape. Numerous switchbacks and views of several iron mines along the way. Traffic was nonexistent on the trail as we met no one else. Parking at trailhead was good. Overall it wasn't a bad trip.
