This is a nice short paved trail with a very good view at the end. We had pulled in the previous weekend and the parking area was full (leaf peepers), even though it was late afternoon, so we waited till the following weekend when it was raining and windy to avoid the crowd. We enjoyed watching the swirling clouds as... More

This is a nice shady place for a little nature walk. If you are looking for a hike, this is not it. The path was constructed from interesting curved boards, and it is obvious that there was some intent to care about this place. However, it also appears that it is a favorite among youngsters who prefer graffiti (this is... More

This is a great little trail! It's paved, making it wheelchair and stroller accessible. Short enough for my 3 year old to make it up and back without needing to be carried. Beautiful view awaits you at the top when it's clear

It's short, but beautiful with a great view. The paved path was good for our 4 &6 year olds. The kids climbed on large rocks, that they called "the playground", that were safe enough. A couple miles farther down the stone road is another great path for kids; Lions Trail. If you're in the area with kids, do both.

The Storybook Trail is paved and level - appropriate for all ages. The view at the end of a short walk is of the spectacular Page Valley, and if you do this trail on a clear day, you'll be rewarded with terrific long-range views.

Great easy walk from parking lot to view platform. 1/4 mile paved walkway with informational signs along the way. Good for couples and families alike, wheelchair accessible, too.

Off the beaten path, but well worth the time to go and see it! It is a short walk on a paved trail out to a nice overlook of the valley.

This is a great trail to do with small children. My 3 year old was able to walk the whole thing, to the peak and back. My 14month could walk some herself. As other people said- it's paved and easy. GPS wanted us to turn off some closed overgrown road. Essentially to get there from Luray downtown, take 211 west... More

Limited parking, handicapped trail from parking lot to the overlook, on 211 east but off the beaten path, well worth the trip, senic views somewhat to the north and south, but great views east
