Hike the mountains in Virginia

Written by The Steele Group Sotheby’s International Realty

Virginia offers great possibilities to mountain hiking lovers as it is made up primarily of heavily forested and hilly mountainous landscapes. These landscapes are dominated by the Appalachian Mountains extending through the west to about half of the state covering Virginia’s western border with Kentucky, West Virginia and part of Maryland’s northern border. Other important mountain ranges include the Blue Ridge Mountains that run south through North Carolina and the Allegheny Mountains that stretches north to Pennsylvania. The tallest peak among them can be found in the southwest region with Mt. Rogers which stands at more than 5,700 ft.

If you intend to hike the mountains in Virginia, consider getting an early start so that you are able to make the most of the scenery before sunset. Pack a lot of water, food stuff and equipment. You might want to get some insect repellent in case the weather gets humid and you pass a zone with a lot of bugs. Download trail maps on your smartphone or tablet so that you are easily guided. Do not forget to bring your camera along to take pictures and enjoy the fresh scenery.
