The Massanutten Storybook Trail at George Washington National Forest near Luray, Virginia is an easy 0.6 mile out-and-back trail that leads out to a lookout point high above Shenendoah Valley. Across the valley is the mountain range that makes up Shenandoah National Park and to the northeast is Strickler Knob and Middle Mountain.
The trail is flat and paved, just over a quarter mile long before it reaches the lookout point. The observation deck has a railing, but the trail continues along the cliff's edge where you can sit along the boulders at your own risk.
