Greatest Hikes in VA

What are some of the best hikes you've done in Virginia?

To get it started, I'd say McAfee Knob and Old Rag are some of our favorites.

The Dragon's Tooth Hike is one of my favorites around Catawba.

After a good morning hike, you can pig out at the Homeplace Restaurant nearby for lunch.

Another in C'Ville area

Crabtree Falls in the Charlottesville area is one of my personal favorites, that is where my wife and I had our first date.

I hiked 1/3 of the Appalachian Trail and all of it through Virginia. Some of the better hiking is closer to the Southwest of VA. I believe the AT goes through Dragon's Tooth, which I enjoyed quite a bit. If you're looking for something closer to NOVA, then Shenandoah National Park was nice, lots of wildlife very used to people. Saw a few bears. But too many people in my opinion, especially in the summer.

I hiked the AT as well. I agree wholeheartedly with the suggestions so far. Some of my other favs were MT. Roger's area (Whitetop Mountain and Buzzard Rock), Tinker Cliffs, Spy Rock, and various sections of the Shenandoah National Park. Aside from the AT, I also generally like Big Levels and St. Mary's Wilderness. BB

Old Rag is the Best! I agree that there's too many people though. I always take a day off in the middle of the week to go.

+1 on Shenandoah National park trails, especially humpback rocks and bearfence mountain. Also crabtree falls is pretty neat, but can be crowded.

Three Ridges Hike is great for backpacking and located right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Blue Hole is a nice hike for a few hours if you want to go for a swim and jump off the rope swing. Of course, save Blue Hole for spring, summer or fall.
