This is a nice easy hike with a breathtaking view at the end! We were able to see the 'smoke' come rolling in. The hike only took about 45 minutes total to walk there and back. Stop for a picture on the Appalachian Trail! This...More

Tried to park at the 39.1 mile mark Little Stony Man trail-head per another reviewer's suggested but it was full. It turns out you could park just insider the Skyline headquarter compound after the 40 mile marker. The trail was easy but a little confusing...More

Stony Man Mountain is a great and relatively easy hike to the top. Beautiful view on the West Virginia mountains in the west. With the changing leaves in the tree, the landscape is an array of beautiful color. We have been visiting Shenandoah National Park...More
