Roaring Branch Trail

This almost 9-mile round-trip trek travels from a trailhead located on U.S. Business 23 (about 1.5 miles from downtown Big Stone Gap) to the High Butte Overlook. This is also the eastern section of the 14.2-mile Stone Mountain Trail, which ends at Cave Springs Recreation Area.

This hike is rated strenuous and can be difficult to follow during certain seasons of the year.
