cgard61AT from Panorama  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2017


Beautiful fall views. Lots of ladybugs at the top. It's worth the extra time to explore and scramble up all of the boulders to the south.

wanderweg83Mary's Rock/Pinnacle combo  Sucess!


One of my favorite days in the park. I started out in foggy, drizzly weather at the parking lot. Along the way, the sun gradually came out. All of the spring wildflowers were in full bloom, and the views from Mary's Rock were spectacular.

Some parts of the snowy Meadow Springs trail were sunlit and warm, but exposure to a fierce wind on the west side of the ridge was nasty. I almost was blown over when I stood on the summit.

Twice so far - July 2012 and November 2017. I like to stand on the true summit. Fun boulders, nice views.

wvasmithNice Hike  Sucess!


Hiked from the base off RT 211 to the top, nice hike with steep sections and saw 2 black bear along the trail which made the climb from the bottom well worth it.

gkaufmanExcellent bushwack  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 1, 2008


Parked at the Mary's Rock tunnel overlook and bushwacked up and over the tunnel to the intersection with the AT where the bushwacking got too overgrown. Summit was empty, cold, and windy. The fall colors were mostly gone but there were still some making for a beautiful day.

KobaNorth AT  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 12, 2008


Rocky summit is cool but the real less visited gem (or at least when I visited with Panorama closed) is the AT north of Mary's Rock coming down to Thornton Gap, wow!

YEMAT in Winter  Sucess!


This was back before I knew about crampons. They sure would have been helpful. Mary's maintains a commanding view of the area and is a great conditioning hike.

vanman798Several Times  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 18, 2000


I've walked to this rock several times. The views are nice. I can't pinpoint an exact date, but I know I did it one time the same week as Earth Day in 2000 (Earth day is always April 22).

CheesySciFiA foggy and rainy day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 5, 2006


My mom and I hiked up the Meadow Springs Trail to Mary's Rock. A light rain was falling and the forest was shrouded in mist. It made the hike a different experience from the clear days that I was used to.

A great hike is to go up the Buck Hollow Trail and up to Mary's Rock then up the AT and down the Pass Mountain Trail with a one mile shuttle at the bottom.
