Flat Top Mountain Trail

We ended up hiking in the rain since the weather lied so we had a view of solid fog at the top, which stunk but the hike was great (other than the rain). The trail is easy to follow, well kept, and very navigable. It's a steady incline with switchbacks but totally doable for low fitness levels. I myself work out, but am still in the process of loosing weight so I stopped many times on the way up to catch my breath from the climb. But it's worth it to now I conquered this and neighboring Sharp Top!

smooth well graded paths, more of a walk than a hike.

Nice for solitude. The trails aren't marked too well, but it is hard to get off them.

There are a couple of ponds that are beautifully filled with lily pads.

The Buck Mountain Trail is located at MP 123.2 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's a short (1 mile round trip) hike to the overlook at the summit. There's not much of a view, but it's a good leg stretcher if you are traveling the Parkway and need a break.

The entrance to the Virginia Explore Park is located at MP 114.9 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are numerous trails inside the park. Stop in the Visitor Center and ask for a trail map. We hiked the Old Salem Turnpike Trail (red blaze) and took some time to look at the historic buildings.

The Fallingwater Cascades Trail is located at MP 83.1 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's relatively short (almost 2 miles) with moderate inclines, and worth the effort. The trail is well maintained, mostly wooded, and slightly rocky. The closest bathrooms are located at the Peaks of Otter Visitor Center (MP 86).
