We went up and a) the view was great--exactly what you see in the other photos, but b) we saw clouds rolling in from the valley and literally slamming into us on the overlook. It was very cool seeing the vapor rise up below us...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

This is a great start to exploring the Shenandoah National Park. Its a beautiful area easily accessible from the Shenandoah valley. The scenic drive across the top gives superb views but getting on to the trails is the only way to really experience the area....More

I took my first hike on Mother’s Day and it was truly a treat! The hike was moderate in skill level, busy enough should anything go wrong and long enough to get a feel for hiking! The view was breathtaking and pretty cool to feel...More

What a great intro to the Shenandoah National Park. The hike was a gradual, easy incline to a breathtaking summit and then looped back to origin. At a casual pace, it took less than an hour to complete.

We chose this as a "warm-up" hike since we haven't been doing much mountain hiking lately. It is well-marked, easy, and takes you to a spectacular view of the Shenandoah Valley.

The view is outstanding and the hike is easy so great for all. The view at the end is fantastic. I would recommend this hike for the family and honestly the view is spectacular. Of course there are great views all along Skyline Drive.

A great way to experience a forest hike with small kids, takes you through the woods to the sounds of birds and rewards you with mesmerizing view at the end. Must do if you are visiting Skyline. The parking is outside the road to Skyland.
