The Nelson Scenic Loop connects a tapestry of natural and historic wonders, and highlights the cultural contributions of the local community. Trails are an important part of the Nelson Scenic Loop experience. Whenever possible, park, walk, and take in the view or make new connections with the community and the landscape. The Loop provides links to several exciting bike and hike trails, some of which—like the Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway—are nationally and internationally renowned. We invite you to enjoy the extensive trail network that is accessible from the Loop’s road system. These trails offer an opportunity to connect with the wondrous landscape of Nelson County, while promoting physical, mental, and spiritual health and well-being. When visiting these trails, please remember to respect these treasures, helping us to ensure their survival for future generations.
