Surprisingly nice view at the top. Scenic forest throughout. Great hike close to Winchester.

This hike is a local gem in that it can be done relatively quickly and without a whole lot of planning, but it still delivers in terms of views. A nice escape into a beautiful natural setting for a few hours. Make sure to bring the appropriate footwear and research where to park to avoid towing (Bears Den parking lot is the safest bet).

The excellent rock scramble and 360 degree views made this hike the most enjoyable and rewarding one I've found in VA thus far.

There are multiple trails around Wintergreen Mountain Resort from easy to difficult. The Cedar Cliffs trail to Shamokin Gorge overlook is short but the overlook is very nice.

I think this trail is located near Buchanan in Botetourt County, not Bedford. It has been a few years for me so I am ready to go again. I have hiked it from the parkway down to the falls and I have hiked it up to the falls. From the bottom it is about an 8 mile round trip. It is one of my favorite hikes in the Roanoke area. Make sure you go after a lot of rain because the falls are so much better!

Nice. Lots of spiders. My 4 year old needed to be carried for about one mile of the three. I liked how it was steep at first so the final part was downhill. My 6 and 8 year olds did fine.
