Take in the View at Roanoke Mountain Overlook
Rate this Adventure Virginia › Roanoke Mountain Overlook
Added by Kenton Steryous
The Roanoke Mountain Overlook provides a unique view of Roanoke, VA that differentiates itself from the more popular (and more crowded) Roanoke Star on nearby Mill Mountain.
The Roanoke Mountain Road is a 4 mile one-way loop accessed at mile post 120.3 off the Blueridge Parkway. It's a winding single-lane road, and I would certainly not venture up there with a trailer. There is a large parking area at the main overlook which provides an excellent view of the sunset. There are also plenty of picnicking areas available.
So if you're short on time, or simply aren't in the mood for an extended hike, but still want to capture a sunset against the Blueridge Mountains, then take a drive up to Roanoke Mountain. You won't be disappointed.

This loop hike is accessed from a short walk from the Bold Cypress Trail and the visitor center. There are no views along this trail but the what I enjoyed was the pine needle covered trail itself.
