Fairwood Valley and Mount Rogers Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This loop hike covers some of the most varied terrain in the Southern Appalachians—fields and forests, open meadows covered with rhododendrons and blueberries, and spruce and fir atop Mount Rogers. Mount Rogers, whose summit is visited via a side trail, is the highest point in Virginia (elevation 5,729').
Snow can still be seen atop the summit as late as March. In addition to Mount Rogers, this hike features Pine Mountain (elevation 5,050'), a high plateau of open meadows dotted with trees, rock outcrops, rhododendrons, and azaleas."
