The summit of this trail is sitting at over 3,500 feet and has access way from several different roads. It's a fantastic way to spend an afternoon in the fall
To access Mary's Rock, you can use two routes:
1. Starting from Panorama it's 3.7 mi round trip and the hike is moderately difficult
2. From Meadow Springs it's 2.8 mi round trip and it's moderately difficult as well.
No matter which way you decide to go, the views are fantastic, the only difference is if you're starting from Panorama, your climb is more or less steady.
Enjoy the hike, let us know how it went and most importanly be safe.
This spot is the most photographed one of all, on the Appalachian Trail as it snakes it's way though Virginia.
The McAfee Knob has a close to 270 degree panoramic view of the North Mountain over to the West, Tinker Cliffs looking North, Roanoke Valley over in the Easter direction and last but not least, the Catawba Valley.
A fairly easy gain of almost 1700 fee in just under 4.4 miles till the Knob starting from the nearest parking lot.
When the day is clear, you'll have hands down, the best views available in the Southern Shenandoah Valley.
Because of how extremely popular it is, there's no way that you'll get to enjoy it on your own, so prepare to make friends with other hikers.
Definitely worth a trip out to the Shenandoah, and be sure to let us know how it went either in comment or here.
