From Luray, VA: Travel west on Highway 211, and turn right on FR 274 - Crisman Hollow Road. Continue for 4.5 miles and watch for Scothorn Gap Trail sign. Turn off the road and park near the trailhead.Note: Scothorn Gap Trail is yellow blazed.

Take the Scothorn Gap Trail from the parking area and cross Passage creek. The trail ascends approximately 500 feet in 1.25 miles to a four-way intersection. Go straight through the intersection leaving Scothorn Gap Trail and joining the orange blazed Massanutten Trail. The Massanutten Trail climbs roughly .75 miles to the top of the Massanutten Mountain Ridge. At this point, the Strickler Knob Trail, pink blazed, is directly to the right at the very top of the ridge. It is not really marked clearly at first and is difficult to find. The top of the ridge is very rocky and everything runs together. Just remember to look on the right, South, when arriving at the top of the ridge. After leaving the Massanutten Trail and heading South on the Strickler Knob Trail, the summit is approximately 1.0 mile away. The last .25 mile of the Strickler Knob Trail is a Class 2 rock scramble. The sections are well marked with pink blazes or red diamonds. There is a summit register located just South of the main summit blocks.

I won't be able to attend this week. A couple summers ago, Elise and I hiked Strickler's Knob. It was spectacular, especially if you aren't afraid of heights and can jump around like a billy goat (that would be Elise, not me). One caution, we missed the last turn to reach the top. It is well marked with a log and stones stacked on top of each other (what are those formations called?). We sat down and admired the stone formation, but did not realize we were to turn off the path at that spot! We continued on the path we were on and started to go downhill. After 20 minutes, realized we made a mistake. We turned back and found the correct path. So, now that you know the mistake we made, don't do what we did. Good idea to allow plenty of time.
