Stony Man  Sucess!

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".

Cold and Windy  Sucess!

Nice short hike. Needed a break after the past 30 days. Conducting a recon for a future rapel.

Long Day  Sucess!

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.

Rain, Wind, Fog  Sucess!

Easy, very enjoyable summit. The view from up there is the best in SNP, even with wind, pouring rain, and fog obscuring parts of the view.

Stony Man on a Cold November Afternoon  Sucess!

As if the views from the summit weren't enough, I got to look out over the Little Stony Man Cliffs as well! A fine hike.

Route Climbed: Stony Man Loop  Sucess!

Did it right after Hawksbill. Weather was coming in so it was a quick visit to the summit.

Did it many times  Sucess!

Several great hikes include a climb of Stony Man. Last summer, for a training hike, I started from the Old Rag parking lot in Nethers and went up Nicholson Hollow, the Corbin Mountain Trail, and the Old Rag Fire Road followed by a climb of Stony Man and then a return down Nicholson Hollow.

Part of a loop that included Little Stony Man and the Passamaguoddy Trail. Parked at the south entrance to Skyland (near the stables)

Great memory!

Backpacked up with my Scout troop in April 1994(?)...we slept on a small ledge just below the summit on the edge of a cliff. Woke up to snow the next morning...hiked down to take on White Oak Canyon and Old Rag.

My first rock climb  Sucess!

Along with about 12 other people, I learned the fundamentals of climbing at Little Stony Man cliffs with Outdoors at UVA. I am looking forward to my upcoming two year anniversary. Thanks Aarash!
