Mary's Rock



This 2.8 mile sometimes steep round trip hike offers excellent views from Mary's Rock.  Few peaks offer what Mary's Rock offers; a view east over the Piedmont as well as west over Shenandoah Valley.  The easiest hike to the summit is to start from Meadow Spring parking area at milepost 33.5 of Skyline Drive.

Cross the drive from the parking area and ascend on the blue blazed Meadow Spring Trail for 0.7 miles to the junction of the white blazed Appalachian Trail.  Here at the AT junction you'll turn right and follow the AT to blue blazed side trail on the left that will take you the last 500 feet to Mary's Rock.
