Mt. Rogers is my favorite hike out of my 31 state hps. It's best to bring your family and friends to see a variety of terrain, endless views, wild horses and enjoy the fantastic view in Virginia!

We stayed at Hiker Inn @ Damascus, VA, the AT hiker town.

Damascus is a nice little town.

Extremely twisty road to the trailhead from Damascus, fun even in our Ford Escape!

Excellent trip report and fantastic pictures. We just did this one and I totally agree that it is one of the best highpoint hikes. Between the views and the horses this highpoint uniquely awesome.
