On the crest of the Blue Ridge, Floyd County's lush mountainscapes portray
the diversity and beauty of the mountain plateau and present a natural playground
whether your fun is hiking, biking, fishing, camping and/or photography.
Never traversed by a four-lane road or rail-line, Floyd County's heritage and natural beauty are remarkably well-preserved. Chosen for 40 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway, it's among the most beautiful counties
in Virginia with scenic overlooks, picturesque working farms, and historic sites, including the famed Mabry Mill, which is maintained of the Parkway and tourism magnet for the region.
Hike up Buffalo Mountain, part of a 1,000-acre Natural Area Preserve that stands nearly 4,000 feet in altitude. Enjoy panoramic views of the forest, fields, sunrises and sunsets. This mountain was once part of a large land grant given to Robert E. Lee's father, "Lighthorse Harry" Lee for his military service. Along the hike on the Rock Castle Gorge National Recreational Trail, you'll see tunnels of rhododendren and other thick mountain foliage, a splashing stream, and high open meadows.
While you're there, stay at a Virginia Green lodging establishment. These properties have taken steps to ease their carbon footprint in Virginia.
Come and get close to the land in Floyd, and see what it's like to be nurtured by nature.
