Rhododendron Gap

Rhododendron Gap Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike takes you through the heart of the Virginia Highlands, an area of breathtaking beauty. You will climb to Wilburn Ridge and follow a loop trail along the ridge to Rhododendron Gap. Wilburn Ridge has rock outcrops that afford many magnificent views, and Rhododendron Gap surrounds the Trail with hundreds of acres of rhododendrons.

The rhododendrons are usually at peak bloom between the third week in June and the first week in July. The vast garden in bloom is an awesome sight to see. This is not a secret spot, however, and the Trail can be crowded during peak bloom, particularly on weekends. Rhododendron Gap is also a great place to pick blueberries in late August."
