The country's premier hiking trail passes right through Botetourt on its way from Georgia to Maine. The Appalachian Trail enters southwestern Botetourt on Tinker Mountain, then crosses the valley at Daleville before heading into the Blue Ridge Mountains on its northeastern route. The Appalachian Trail has several access points in Botetourt. One of the easiest accesses is from US 220 at Interstate 81 just behind the Stop In Food Store (Exxon station). There is a public parking area there, too. The trail crosses several county roads in the Troutville area before going into the Jefferson National Forest on Mountain Pass Road. The trail then runs the ridge tops along the county's eastern border as it continues northeast paralleling and criss-crossing the Blue Ridge Parkway.
