Paved short hiking trail with a beautiful overlook at the end. Babbling brook, interesting bridge, some protection from the wind. Well worth the short drive up from Luray.

This is a paved trail, that is very flat and easy to walk. If you are a fast walker, it can be completed in 10-15 minutes. Most people can easily spend 30-60 minutes enjoying the walk and overlook. Parking is limited. The gravel pull-off area...More

We drove to this trail from Shenandoah NP in conjunction with a visit to Luray Caverns. You'll need your GPS on to find the road that you turn onto to get to it. Once there, we started out on the trail: it's paved and it's...More

Really enjoyed the view. Easy paved path from parking lot to overlook. Saw several eagles flying overhead and close. May like having binoculars along. Finding the turnoff to trail is not well marked. Ask directions before jumping in car to get there (located between Luray...More

This was a well maintained paved interpretive trail that leads to a fabulous view. It was a bit of a drive to get out here and the trail is very very short. Took us maybe 10 minutes to walk out and back. This would be...More

We went here while we were in Luray. I randomly Googled trails nearby and out of several this looked the most interesting, and it surely didn't disappoint. The trail is paved and easy access for those in wheelchairs. Alternatively, you can go "off-road" and walk...More
