Great Channels of Virginia Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike to Middle Knob, atop Clinch Mountain, to first capture incredible mountain views from multiple rock outcrops in the shadow of a retired fire tower. Then enter The Channels, a maze of slender paths running between, around, and under huge sandstone monoliths. This Virginia Natural Area Preserve deserves its designation and is one of the most unusual rock formations in the Appalachians."
