Stony Run starts just north of Brushy Hollow
off of Douthat Road. The climb up to Middle Mountain
is one of the biggest in the park.
The grade is not steep at first but after the first trail intersection, the trail begins to ramp up. Stay straight at the next intersection with a horse sign and begin the real climbing. From here to the turnoff for Tuscarora Overlook youll experience several switchbacks through mature forest.
The best views of the park are available from the cabin at Tuscarora Overlook, the out-and-back should not be missed.
From the overlook, the last bit of the trail climbs through a boulder field to the ridge, intersecting with Middle Mountain
