Feathercamp Ridge

Feathercamp Ridge Professional Review and Guide

"If Mount Rogers’s summit is the heart, Iron Mountain is the backbone of southwest Virginia’s mountain playground. Its breadth, 80 miles from the Tennessee-Virginia state line to the New River, makes it one of Virginia’s longest ridges. The natural resources it holds made it a target of mineral and timber industries in earlier times.

Now it simply offers miles of uninterrupted hiking and access to remote, less-visited parts of Mount Rogers National Recreation Area. On Feathercamp Branch, the scenery rivals any along Virginia’s many mountain streams. As it ducks under thick rhododendron, it gathers speed between the steep shoulders of Iron Mountain and drops into shallow pools deep enough to wade."
