Enjoy 30 miles of
LUSH GREENWAY
Maybe you want to get in a good power walk or run,
but want to stay away from the woods? The Roanoke
Valley Greenways may serve your purpose. Traipse
over bridges, through the trees, and past lovely
views of the city and of the mountains as you enjoy
Virginia's Blue Ridge from the comfort of the path.

Take a trip to
ROARING RUN
For a family-friendly adventure, try an
excursion to Roaring Run Recreation Area.
Walk along a trail that follows the Roaring
Run stream past rock walls and over
footbridges. You will also find a 19th century
iron ore furnace that was used during the
pre-Civil War era. Plan for a picnic here
or an afternoon of pleasant fishing.

Hike the
MILL MOUNTAIN STAR TRAIL
Doesn't it sound intriguing? Believe it or not, this trail really
does take you to a star - the world's largest freestanding
man-made one, overlooking the Roanoke Valley. Start at Mill
Mountain's base and work your way to the summit, where
you can check out the star and the views, and enjoy a family
picnic while you're there.

See the world on
SHARP TOP MOUNTAIN
The Sharp Top Mountain trail will take you to a photographer's
dream - 360° views of the mountains, the valleys below,
and of the Peaks of Otter Lodge. Excellent, challenging hiking
abounds here, and visitors can enjoy close proximity to the
action by checking in at the Lodge, which boasts delicious
buffet meals and even better views. This area is also a
fisherman's paradise, as nearby Abbott Lake is chock full
of bass, catfish, blue gill, and more.

Join the fun of an
OUTDOOR EVENT
The calendar is always full of exciting outdoor events in
Virginia's Blue Ridge! Take part in the challenge of the
Blue Ridge Marathon - America's Toughest Road Marathon,
