The Blue Ridge Parkway is probably the best place to start if you want to enjoy the hiking in and around Sparta and Alleghany County. Here you can find an abundance of great hiking trails and panoramic views. Hike the 15 minute loop up to Cumberland Knob (Mile Post 217), venture atop Mahogany Mountain (Mile Post 235) and see the hawks fly over, or spend the day exploring Doughton Park (Mile Post 238) with its seven thousand acres of unspoiled wilderness.

For other hiking in the area, check out the state parks in the region. Stone Mountain State Park is a great place to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and hikers can try their hand at hiking all the way to the dome's 600 foot summit. The park contains more than 14,000 acres of forested lands and also is a renowned spot for rock climbing. New River State Park, located just a short drive away, is also a special place to enjoy hiking as there are many trails and paved walkways for visitors to enjoy.
