The Highlands Scenic Drive is a 19 mile loop between Clifton Forge in Alleghany County and Interstate 64 at Lexington. The scenic drive is a must-see experience for all visiting Virginia's Western Highlands and makes the outdoors and nature accessible even to those who would rather not hike into a wilderness area.
Take Exit 43 off I-64 westbound, go short distance on SR 780, turn left on Forest Road 447 to begin the 19 mile loop tour. Follow the scenic tour map located on the US Forest Service Site.
