From its lowest point at sea level to its loftiest mountain more than 5,000 feet high, southern Virginia is an unparalleled region. The terrain is diverse and beautiful, and the plants and wildlife are varied and abundant. To truly see and appreciate the land's natural wonders, a person should travel on foot.
In the east, walk for miles upon quiet beaches or hike across Tidewater lands preserved for migrating birds. Upon the rolling piedmont of central Virginia, discover historic sites from the days of the Civil War, as well as hikes around lakes both large and small. To the west, negotiate the ups and downs of the Blue Ridge region where the rewards are well worth the effort. Gaze at wave after wave of Southern Appalachian ridgeline and at dozens of waterfalls that gush down steep slopes. Plus, hundreds of miles of the Appalachian Trail create opportunities for backpacking.
