Millers Head Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A five- to six-hour, 4.2-mile hike that provides glimpses of the bygone era of the mountain people. On this hike, head downhill via the Corbin Cabin Cutoff Trail, ascend via the Nicholson Hollow Trail, and end up on the other side of Skyline Drive. This pretty hike is convenient for the many folks who stay at Skyland during their visit to the park.

Once on Millers Head Trail, head downhill via a series of switchbacks. About 0.3 mile before the observation platform, there is a cement post. Keep going down the trail to the platform. Along the way there are some good views, but none are as nice as the one from the Millers Head observation platform, at an elevation of about 3,460 feet. From here you can get full views of the Page Valley, the town of Luray, Massanutten Mountain, Stony Man, Hawksbill, and Marys and Bettys Rocks."
