Appalachian Trail

What does the Appalachian Trail in Virginia mean to you? We asked dozens of AT hikers about their experience on the trail in Virginia, and they didn't hold back. With so much to say about the spectacular beauty and unforgettable experiences they found, it's hard to pick one. Watch the video for their favorites (hint: Grayson Highlands is pretty awesome!).

Whether hiking through a small section of the 544 miles of untamed wilderness or conquering the entire Appalachian Trail, create your own perspective and find out more about the endless beauty that is Virginia.
