Mount Rogers Summit

Troutdale, VA

The Mount Rogers National Recreation Area is a real hub of activity. A 115,000-acre mountain wonderland within the George Washington & Jefferson National Forests. It encircles Virginia's highest peak, rocky Mount Rogers. You'll find over 400 miles of maintained trails, including 60 miles of the Appalachian Trail, 18 miles of the Virginia Creeper National Recreation Trail, a rail to trail, and 67 miles of the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail. Those who prefer to see the park by car can follow the Mt. Rogers Scenic Byway. This 34-mile long road is the highest in the state and climbs part of Whitetop Mountain.
