This isn't my favorite hike in the Roanoke Valley but it's a great workout to the top with a nice view. The parking lot is small and is located in a residential area, so be careful when you drive, you pass a lot people's homes.
Nice easy hike with a few options to extend your walk. One good view at Buzzard's Roost. Maps at the start. Little hard to find. The entrance looks like a driveway between two houses. Trails are in good shape last I went.
I've done the Buzzards Rock hike several times, it's a nice moderate hike, not many views on the way up but a pretty decent one at the end. Like it because it's so close to town and can be done in a relatively short amount of time and at the last minute.

This is the ONE place you should come to hike. Not a ton of parking but this is a trail system. Its not just one. Simple 30 minute romantic hike, or a three hour and 5 mile trek, that is up to you. This one is good for kids (bring snacks) and its perfect for couples or friends. Lots of... 更多
Not much parking. I was expecting a single trail up and down and we were pleasantly surprised at the trail system. Seems like we had the whole mountain to ourselves. Caught a few geocaches along the trail too!
