    North from Damascus will put you through Mt Rodgers & Grayson Highlandlands with the wild ponies. Another great streach is Pearisburg northbound. You would hit the VA Tripple Crown; Dragons Tooth, MaCafee Knob & Tinkers Cliff.

    Omg thank you all for the great suggestions! Sounds like there are several hikes that are truly favorites. I can't wait to sit down and take the time to check into each of these. Any more suggestions I am still open! So excited!
