There are many reasons why we at Highview Motors GMC love being located in Virginia, including the many gorgeous, outdoor spaces. Fall is the perfect time to get outside and do some hiking near Altavista. Check out one of these trails and enjoy the gorgeous foliage this season.
James River Heritage Trail
Lynchburg, Virginia is just a 40 minute drive north from Altavista, and if you’re a fan of biking, roller skating, or hiking, it’s the perfect trail for you. The five-mile paved trail starts at Percival’s Island Natural Area and runs through a gorgeous historic area.
If you’re willing to drive a little farther to Buchanan, you can enjoy a breathtaking view at the summit of Buzzard Rocks. The Sharp Top trail is accessible by car, and the hike to the summit is just three miles long.
While you’re in Buchanan, you might want to save energy for the slightly longer Flat Top hike. At 5.8 miles long, this is a great day hike, or can be part of a bigger hike if you’re pushing it. This hike requires some climbing and hard work, but the view you’ll have once you get the to top will be worth your efforts.
At Highview Motors GMC, we are proud to serve the Altavista area.
