Within the region are three of the most popular trails in the country: the Virginia Creeper Trail, which is almost wholly within its boundaries; a good portion of the New River Trail, which starts in Galax; and the Appalachian Trail, which passes over Whitetop Mountain and Mount Rogers. At 5,729 feet, Mount Rogers is the highest peak in either of the Virginias, and it is a popular backcountry destination. If you like to hike, bicycle, ride horses, camp, canoe, or photograph nature, you’ll like the Mount Rogers region. This eTrail covers 7 waterfalls in this region including Big Rock Falls, Lower waterfall on Cabin Creek, Upper waterfall on Cabin Creek, Waterfall on Wilson Creek, Rowland Creek Falls, Comers Creek Falls, and Chestnut Creek Falls.
