get more from BRO

If you seek new adventures, Southwest Virginia has opportunities that abound. Hike Southwest Virginia’s 200 miles of the Appalachian Trail, navigate a new fork of rapids, or camp at one of Virginia’s national renowned State Parks. The action in Southwest Virginia is unparalleled and endless, passive or high adrenaline. It’s a place for new memories and lifetime experiences: accessible wilderness, extreme adventure, and pastoral recreation, all rolled into one.

The Southwest Virginia region encompasses the Counties of Bland, Buchanan, Carroll, Dickenson, Floyd, Franklin, Giles, Grayson, Lee, Montgomery, Patrick, Pulaski, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington, Wise, Wythe and the Cities of Bristol, Galax, Norton and Radford.

If you are looking for stunning natural beauty, Southwest Virginia is a place where peace and tranquility come in dramatic form, from the highest mountain peaks in Virginia to the most diverse river ecosystem in all of America. Whether taking scenic drives to view the Fall color, following Daniel Boone’s footsteps along the Wilderness Road, or simply fishing, floating or paddling on a meandering river, time spent in the region adds up to something much more than a simple getaway.
