View from the Top on Storybook Trail


We took several pictures at the mountain overlook where the trail ends. In the first one, we're looking down on Lee Highway (211), which you can take to reach Crisman Hollow Road (FR 274) near the crest of New Market Gap. However, last week we got there from Mt. Jackson, taking Moreland Gap Road eastward at Meem's Bottom, turning right on Crisman Hollow and following it through the forest until we reached the parking lot for Storybook Trail.  (See my post on the Lion's Tale Trail if you plan to find the road that way because the intersection can seem confusing.)  

Here's a 20-second video showing the high point of the trail.

Another place to see great views from the top of the Massanutten Range is Woodstock Tower.
