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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
