Hike for a day or a few hours along the Trail. Camp in a primitive shelter or pitch a tent or leave the Trail for a full-featured RV campground, nearby bed and breakfast, or cabin. Enjoy unparalleled scenic beauty from the mountaintops, along rocky streams, or in the verdant valleys in between. See wildflowers and animals along the trail – and bask in the birdsong and peaceful quiet of the backwoods.
Off the trail, there are wineries, craft breweries, disc golf courses, climbing spots indoors and out, and scenic drives and jaw-dropping vantage points galore. Our communities are friendly and warm, with opportunities for music, crafts, shopping, restaurants, outfitters, and a chance to make new friends.
Feast your eyes, sleep in the great outdoors and challenge your endurance – there are lots of recreation opportunities in the Appalachian Trail region of Southwest Virginia!
