Buzzard Rock Trail

We've often passed the sign for Buzzard Rock Trail on Mountain Road when taking the scenic route to Front Royal. In early April we decided to take a short walk on the trail to check it out. We did not attempt to hike to the top; we just wanted to stretch our legs and enjoy a spring day.

The first section of the trail crosses a stream several times.  It goes up a hill through the woods. We probably walked a half mile up or less. To reach the view point, we would have had to go two miles.

This is a fairly popular trail on weekends but on the day we were there we only saw one family there.
