    The trail to the top is a bit steep but worth the hike for sure. My dad (70 years old) made the hike just fine! We will definitely go back again someday~  more »

    This is an easy walking trail (less than one mile) with plenty to see along the way. There are rock formations as well as flora and fauna which make this a beautiful, scenic trail. The end of the trai...  more »

    It's paved! It's short! It terminates in a lovely view of the valley! There are signs along the walkway that highlight the region's geological history (some signs are more helpful than others). It's a...  more »

    Immaculate views!! I remember coming here when i was really young. Sat on the edge of the rocks on the offtrail path. Really makes you feel on top of the world. Great place for anyone who enjoys wonderful nature walks. And its handicap accessible.( Paved and wooded bridges path.) You wont be disappointed here. 😊🌲🌄

    Easy, flat, and a short walk towards a beautiful lookout. There is also a lot of small trails that finger off the path which can also be fun. Those are unpaved and there are a lot of easy rocks to climb. Unfortunately there was a lot of graffiti when I went and it definitely distracted from the beauty. I would still recommend it though.

    A little out of the way, but, well worth the time. It's probably a more difficult drive to get to the parking area than it is to hike to the overlook. In fact, the trail is a well maintained, paved walkway that leads to a steel grid platform that offers amazing views of the Shenandoah Valley. Be sure to go during good weather, as there is no rain cover. Would be nice if there were a maintained trash can up there because scumbag people who just toss their empties into the woods ruin the natural beauty.

    Easy, flat, half-mile paved trail to a stunning overlook. Reasonably safe boulder scrambling along the trail, with more precipitous rocks adjacent to the lookout platform (keep the kids close!) The narrow road leading to the trailhead is probably a bit treacherous in poor weather, so choose a dry day.

    Easy paved path from the parking lot to the fantastic overlook. Lots of small trails leading off of the main path. Fun rocks to climb on. Easy to miss small turnoff road from rt 211

Where to stay in Luray

Aptly nicknamed the "Cabin Capital of Virginia," Luray and the surrounding area feature hundreds of mountain cabins, providing spacious suites with panoramic views of the scenic Shenandoah river valley. Though they can be pricey, these cabins are extremely popular with visitors from nearby Baltimore and Washington, D.C., so take time to shop for deals and make your reservations a few months before your trip. For something less expensive, consider one of Luray's small inns or motels.
