Abbott Lake Trail (Milepost 85.6) Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Abbott Lake is the centerpiece of the 4,200-acre Peaks of Otter Recreation Area, one of the Parkway’s most highly recommended places to spend a day or stop for the night. The Peaks of Otter Lodge, on the shore of Abbott Lake, is one of two concessionaire-operated accommodations on the Parkway. It’s open year-round for lodging and dining.

One of the Parkway’s best lakeside strolls or cross-country ski tours circles Abbott Lake at the Peaks of Otter. This is the only paved, fully ADA-accessible trail on the Parkway in Virginia. This is also one of two Peaks of Otter TRACK Trail interpretive paths."
