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."
