Appalachian Trail (VA) - Marion to Roanoke (Segment 2) Professional Review and Guide

"The Appalachian Trail through southwest Virginia forsakes the Blue Ridge for the valley and ridge region, but loses none of the beauty or steep climbs. Open cliffs on Tinker Mountain and overlooks from McAfee Knob and Dragons Tooth are popular
day hikes.

More remote is Wind Rocks in Mountain Lake Wilderness or a perch on Angels Rest, near Pearisburg, with views of the New River. It’s been sixty-plus years since volunteers moved the AT off the Blue Ridge, in hopes of saving the trail’s remote character. It’s safe to say they succeeded."

Dropped in at Dragon Tooth, just for a 8 mile hike to Hwy311, nice short hike. Good mix of woods and open land pasture. Any day on the AT is good.
