Little Stony National Recreation Trail

Lit­tle Stony Nation­al Recre­ation Trail is locat­ed between Coeburn and Dun­gan­non on a nar­row guage rail­road bed that was con­struct­ed in the ear­ly 1900s for log­ging.

The 2.8 mile trail fol­lows the stream through a 400 foot deep and 1,700 foot wide gorge. There are also two water­falls 8 and 24 ft high. You can also see the large rock out­crop at the Hang­ing Rock Pic­nic Area. It is clas­si­fied as being medi­um in degree of dif­fi­cul­ty. Much of the trail is wide and bar­ri­er free, but there are places where the trail cross­es side hol­lows and goes across Stony Creek where it is nec­es­sary to climb over large rocks and boul­ders.

Fish­ing is also allowed along the streams.  The sheer size of the canyon and roar­ing sound of rush­ing water gives the hik­er an excit­ing expe­ri­ence.
