Monday, April 17, My husband and I did this hike after checking in at Skyland lodge, Our room had an amazing view and was very quiet and peaceful.
We had planed on doing the hike the next day, but since all we had to do was walk out our door to begin the hike we decided to do it that evening.
We our both in good shape so we were back before sunset.
We began by taking the Passamaquody Trail from our room to the Little Stony man summit which was really nice and peaceful. We then turned right on the Stony Man Trail and then decided to go left where the trail splits and went to the Stony Man Summit.
We then took the stony Man Horse Trail back to the road that goes to Skyland in order to make it back for our dinner plans. My favorite part of this hike was walking along the edge of the mountain on the Passamaquody Trail and how quiet it was.
Really nice views of Luray. Sunday, September 4, It was a beautiful day and not too hot so we decided to take advantage of the nice weather with a hike. I read about this hike in a magazine and decided to check it out. The trail markers are definitely confusing and we somehow found ourselves at the Skyland Resort where the cabins are.
A nice couple shared their map with us and we walked along the road back to the parking area. The trails to the overlooks are pretty crowded but the Appalachian and Passamaquoddy Trails were less crowded. The overlooks were great, it was a clear day so we could see pretty far.
This was a very easy trail, not many inclines or challenging parts. Unless you plan to do some other hikes or take advantage of the overlooks. We drove 3 hours round trip and the hike took us about 2 hours.
Granted we did get off course but I think we probably did about 3. I printed out the map from the National Park website and I still got confused.
It doesn't have all of the trails on it. I wish there was a better map out there for reference. Friday, August 12, My family hiked this today, and it was pretty enjoyable.
My 6 year old didn't complain too much. We started at about 8: Continuing the circuit, we saw only 3 other hikers and the views from Little Stony man are just as good as at Stony Man.
Towards the end, we almost missed the turn onto the yellow blazed trail. The turn is right at a spring that is inside a locked building on the left listen for the water.
Sunday, August 7, In an effort to get in some miles and solitude, we created our own mile hike starting from the parking area at MP The views along this trail are fabulous. We skirted under the cliffs on the blue-blazed Passamaquoddy where rock climbers were just gearing up for the day.
We would meet them again at the top later in the afternoon as we made our way back via the AT. We followed the Passamaquoddy all the way into Skyland where we kept following any trail or open patch of grass that seemed to head south until we reached the ampitheatre and the start of the Miller's Head Trail.
Climbing up over Brushytop and then down to Miller's Head, we were rewarded with excellent views, though the drains on the overlook at Miller's Head were clogged and the standing water, besides smelling ripe, was attracting way too many bugs especially horse flies to stay there long.
We backed off a couple hundred yards to a rock outcropping on a knoll with a wonderful vista and had a brief lunch. There was only one other group on this trail, a blessing in a day of crowded trails. This little side trail 1. Backtracking to Skyland ampitheatre great butterfly watching all around this areawe picked up the paved entrance road and walked southeast towards Skyline Drive, striking the AT just before reaching Skyline Drive.
We headed north on the AT back towards the car, walking almost immediately through an area where the ground was littered with bushels of chanterelle mushrooms. It took every ounce of LNT training to keep the chef in me from picking a feast for dinner.
