Mount Rogers Spur Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Highpoint rank by height: 19th. When traveling along state roads in this area, it's unlikely that you will be able to exceed 35- 40 miles per hour (56-64 km/h) due to the nature of the terrain and many "no passing" zones. Not much of a view at the highpoint due to trees. You will find the USGS marker embedded in the rock."

This hike was a pleasant surprise. As mentioned in the hike description, the summit is wooded. No matter, as most of the hike reminded me of the Alpine Garden in New Hampshire. Scattered knolls afforded hikers some bouldering experience, and the views on this day were spectacular. A fair number of hikers were on the trail, indicating it's popularity despite the off-season. I plan to hike this again, bringing my children the next time.

Fun trail to hike, not a big challenge, but the views are excellent.
