Dropped by REI today and got the Nat Geo map and a book on the VA highlands.
Lets rephrase the question.
What are the must see trail sections up there?
I kind of feel obligated to bag Mt. Rogers since I'm right there, but I understand it has no views itself. Maybe a good place to hang the first night?
I'm used to Uwharrie and Linville gorge which means most of the time you only see trees around you. The vistas the go on for miles sound great.
