There are 2 main views here, one to the north of the New River and the town of Pearisburg from Angel’s Rest outlook and the second to the south of expansive Wilburn Valley. Both are decent views both having a side perspective of mountain chains Virginia is known for. The foliage makes all the viewpoints better, not just the popular ones. We have both viewpoints to ourselves for a good amount of time after starting around noon on a Saturday during peak foliage season. The bulk of the uphills is within the first 1.6 miles, so it is a bit steeper than the typical A.T. uphill. It will work your calves.
