Mt. Rogers is the highest point in Virginia at 5,729 feet. There are several routes to the summit. Although there is no view from the top, the trails that meander through open meadows and boreal forests make it well worth the journey. No camping is allowed on the summit but there are plenty of great campsites nearby.
Two benchmarks mark the summit.
Regardless of which trail you take, ultimately you end up on one of the nicest sections of the Appalachian Trail. This sections runs through Grayson Highlands, home to wild ponies.
