Quick hike up to Stony Man on a lovely Halloween afternoon. Watched a black bear trot across the trail ahead of us on our way back down to the parking lot.

Date Climbed: May 10, 2015


Possibly my slowest hike ever but it was a guided tour on Shenandoah Park's Wildflower Weekend and the guide (Cathy Mayes) made it one of the most interesting hikes I have ever been on.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2014


It was my only full day in Shenandoah. After hiking the extent of Whiteoak Canyon, most of it in the rain, and then cooking up a late lunch, I wanted to make the most of the remains of my soggy day.

This was one great way to do it! The views were mostly impeded, but that which revealed itself was spectacular. Zero people on the trail -- due to the falling rain, most visitors were viewing the park from the dry interior of their cars.

Of course, just as soon as I got back into the rental, the sun revealed itself, almost blinding me. I had a laugh at the timing and enjoyed the panaromas the setting sun revealed on the way out.

No dugs allowed on summit. Made it to 3,837' and had to turn around. Pretty cool view from the ridge.

My entire family made the summit, guided by my 4 year old daughter. We did the loop, taking the horse trail back down. Very windy and cold, but as my daughters both said, "It's beautiful Dad".

Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2008


Began at the Old Rag parking area and climbed over Old Rag, descended via the Saddle Trail, then up the Old Rag Fire Road, taking a right hand turn onto Skyland-Big Meadows Horse Trail, crossing Skyline Drive, and up the Stony Man Trail to the summit. On the descent we had to make a pit stop into Skyland Resort to find water and interrupted the Apple Butter Festival there. Then we headed back down the Skyland-Big Meadows Horse Trail to the Old Rag Fire Road, took a left on the Corbin Hollow Trail and finished on the Weakley Hollow Fire Road. It was approximately a 17.7 mile day.
