“rich in history, scenic beauty, and abundant hiking”

Located at the northern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Humpback Rocks is an area rich in history, scenic beauty, and abundant hiking trails. Early European settlers forged a living from the native materials that flourished in the Appalachian Mountains. Hickory, chestnut, and oak trees provided nuts for food, logs for building, and tannin for curing hides, while rocks were put to use as foundations and chimneys for the houses, and in stone fences to control wandering livestock. Many self-sufficient farms sprang up in the Humpback Mountain area.  Today, visitors can tour a collection of nineteenth century farm buildings. The Mountain Farm Trail provides access to the cabin and various outbuildings. The area also houses a visitor center, interpretive exhibits, a picnic area, and trails.

It's about a 1 mile hike up hill, labeled as strenuous, to the rocks. Nice view but don't be shocked if your kodak moment is interfered with by a crowd of people. I went on a beautiful Saturday morning which I am sure didn't help.

The steep 1mile hike up to the top was worth the climb for the view, which was amazing!
We took our dogs right to the top of the rocks for a great photo with a heavenly view.
