We placed this on the way across the valley early in the mid-morning (let's say 10 AM). The walk is nicely paved and a casual incline suitable for all ages and abilities; we passed someone who was 98 making her way to the overlook. The...More

Really enjoyed the view. Easy paved path from parking lot to overlook. Saw several eagles flying overhead and close. May like having binoculars along. Finding the turnoff to trail is not well marked. Ask directions before jumping in car to get there (located between Luray...More

It was foggy the day we walked the trail so we were not expecting the best view, but we still enjoyed it & got some beautiful pics.

Don't start this unless you can really walk. Its not far to a great view..but it is slightly uphill and there are no benches along the way. Walkway is paved..it is bikeable and wheelchair ready.
