Revisiting Mary's Rock: An Easy SNP Day Hike
With my mother and brother in town, we decided to head out to Hawksbill Cabin for part of the weekend. I'd wanted to get a hike in with my brother, to share with him some of my favorites from Shenandoah National Park.
Mary's Rock, with it's proximity to the Thornton Gap entry, seemed perfect, especially since there were two lines of more than 10 cars waiting to get in when we arrived. An added benefit is my familiarity with the trail, having done it a half dozen times or so - minimal outfitting.
Check the "easy day hikes" label at the end of this post to find other reviews of Mary's Rock, as well as other easy day hikes in the Park.
A great outing for us. Mary's Rock is now officially a go-to option for visitors who want to put in a hike while they are staying with us.
