This trail is just right for a quick hike before dinner at the Skyland restaurant. It will provide comfortable exercise and interesting local information.

Great hike that takes you along AT, up to the rocks. A little more crowded with families than Mary's Rock. Good signage at the trail head, buy a book for $1 that will guide you to points of interest.

The hike offered a lot of astonishing views of the nature and surrounding areas. I'd say it's a moderate one. However due to recent storms in some areas there was a bunch of fallen trees which made it a bit more challenging to jump through....More

BE CAREFUL driving up and down to get to the trail, especially after dark! Easiest "hike" ever. I think it may be wheel-chair accessible. I'm not entirely sure as I haven't visited for a while. But I don't remember any stairs (though the incline may...More

We did this hike to see the sunset and it did not disappoint. You want to leave before the sun goes down too far but it is a great easier hike that ends in a breathtaking view.

At the beginning of the trail is a box containing a booklet with points of interest along the hike. I thought that the information enhanced the hike with some history (like the copper mine along the trail) and nature notes. And yes, the views at...More

DO NOT go to the address Google gives you in Marksville VA, as it will lead you to a farm way away from where you want to be. Instead put in the address for Shenandoah National Park or find the crossstreet of Skyline Drive and...More

This hike is really short and really easy. It's hard to find a hike with such incredible views for such little effort. Definitely take the 30 or so minutes to do this hike!

Just finished this over this last weekend. It's winter so the foliage is missing right now, but it's still a beautiful area.

The trail was in great shape last October when we hiked it. There is an elevation gain of a few hundred feet.but the slope is very gradual. Kids and older adults who are in reasonable health should have no trouble hiking... More

I don't see why not. As the others pointed out, dress in layers. It was a bit rainy and overcast when I went but it really gave the hike a very cool misty feel. I would definitely avoid ice! Have fun!
