The Monticello Trail winds past Michie Tavern and Carter’s Mountain Orchard on the way to the home of Thomas Jefferson.
Humpback Rocks. It’s short but steep with a great 360-degree-view from the top.
The Abrams Falls Trail in Great Smoky Mountains National Park is my annual fall hike.
The Shut-In Ridge Trail amplifies autumn colors—especially black and blue (and often red).
The Rip Rap Trail in Shenandoah National Park has sweeping valley views and colorful foliage.
Endless Wall Trail in the New River Gorge, W.Va. Spectacular scenery as the foliage turns.
I thoroughly enjoy the hike into Lane Stadium for the Virginia Tech/Virginia showdown.
