Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Stony Man Mountain
We’ve been blessed with yet another week of so super sweet and sunny summer weather, so let’s soak up some sunset from the Stony Man Summit! It’ll be a semi-lengthy drive for a super shockingly short hike, but seeing the sun set with scenery and so many staggeringly stunning people will be so satisfyingly superb, seriously.
We’ll depart from Echols promptly @ 5:00, drive to the Stony Man parking lot (~1hr 20min drive), hike ~3/4 of a mile to the summit and hangout and watch the sunset, then hike back down and drive back to Cville where we should be getting back around 9:15, just in time to hit the town or curl up on the couch with a warm cup of tea, whichever is your cup of tea.
We’ll be doing an abbreviated version of the first hike listed here: https://www.nps.gov/shen/stony-man.htm
