The trailhead was easy to find thanks to AllTrails. There’s no signage for the trail at all, but the path clearly leads away from the parking area. The path follows a stream bed with lots of loose rocks so sturdy shoes makes good sense. The overlook is about 1.4 mikes from the parking area. It was well worth the small amount of exertion. There is another trail that leads away from the overlook, but we didn’t take it. Maybe next time....

Love it!!! Great hike! Short with rewarding views!! Can't wait to go again!

I started at Stony Fork campground and this hike off the recommendation of a lady at the visitor center on I-77. I should have specified I would like a hike with a view. As far as a tough hike this was definitely a good way to go. I'm sure the views would have been great if not for all the trees. I should have read other reviews or I may not have done this hike just because of the 3 mile walk back on the road.

My daughter and I enjoyed this hike on a warm Sunday afternoon. It can be a little challenging going uphill on the rocky trail in one area but when you get to the top, it is well worth all the work. Beautiful!

Fabulous day! Wonderful weather, nice company, great trail. The view at the top is fabulous. A fun Sunday afternoon. And I purchased a fishing license online, thanks to earlier reviews.

You will need an access pass or have a Virgina Hunting or Fishing license

Moderate uphill but downhill felt almost flat. A permit is needed to park in the lot, a ranger told us to get it at https://gooutdoorsvirginia.com but I found it at https://www.dgif.virginia.gov/access-permit/. Thankfully we didn't get a ticket from being out of town but the ranger said they were going to start ticketing people.

loved the hike, didn't love being dropped out 3 miles from my trail head and car.

Trail was fun for such a short walk...nothing hard, but markings shift to red squares after you get to the overlook (which btw is no way 2.7 miles). I continued on the red squares for a while and it was a gorgeous walk. Fun for a few hours. But I'd like to know what the red square trail is?

Easy drive and available parking to the starting point. Trail is just challenging enough to make it fun and adventurous. Even in 38 degree weather you break a sweat and get a good workout in getting to the top in which you are then rewarded with an absolutely incredible view of the surrounding landscape. Gives you that, "on top of the world feeling" especially if you dare to stand upright on the tallest rock. Great way to spend about three hours of my morning.

This trail is not bad for exercise, like others have said, the first mile is not bad. It has many wildflowers to see, but then after the first mile, it becomes really steep, and the views are not too grand. the sign at the top, shows the highest point 3,310 ft. That was the only view at the top. In order to get back to your vehicle, you can either go back the same way on the trail or walk along Kenning Rd.
