Why be Square?! Blue Ridge Yurt

2 sites · Lodging2 acres · Pilot, VA
Blue Ridge Yurts is a woman-owned company in Floyd, Virginia, started by my mother, Sharon. We were staying at Treebones, a yurt 'glampground' in Big Sur, California, and fell in love with yurts together. My mom said, "I think I could build one of these," and the company was born! She does all the woodworking, using sustainable practices, with locally-sourced wood, and her best friend Kathy does the fabric end of things. I was one of her early guinea pigs, and love my yurt property dearly <3 This 24' yurt sits on a beautiful private acreage off an end-state maintenance road, with biking and hiking trails just a 20 minute drive from the touristy town of Floyd, Virginia. There's a steam shower sauna, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a deck overlooking the mountains with a table and seating. Enjoy!

We love hosting campers and are happy to help make accommodations to help you have an enjoyable stay.

Things to watch out for other than the wildlife mentioned above the two main concerns in this part of Virginia are deer ticks and poison ivy.

The best camping near Hanging Rock State Park guide

Overview

About

Drive 30 miles from Winston-Salem to find the Sauratown Mountains. There's more to these scenic beauties than meets the eye once you reach the park grounds. Choose to hike to the top, swim in a cool lake, and walk past some waterfalls.

Head to the top of Moore's Knob, the highest point of the park. Sit on the large gray outcropping and take in the view. Pilot Mountain sits in the distance, all covered in green trees. If you prefer rock climbing, Moore's Wall and Cook's Wall are for you.

Hike on 20 miles of trails in the park, including a trip to see five named waterfalls. The Lower Cascades falls are popular as they cascade 40 feet to a shallow pool. Check out Tory's Den, a rocky outcropping where British loyalists supposedly had a hideout during the Revolution.

Swim at the lake, or rent a canoe to leisurely explore the cool, blue water. Float the Dan River for a scenic, tree-lined journey.

Relax at the 73-site campground for tents or RVs, or rent one of the 10 cabins.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Hanging Rock State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the foliage is either blooming or showcasing a vibrant array of autumn colors. Summer offers lush greenery but can be quite warm, while winter provides a stark, quiet beauty, though some facilities may be limited.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's website for any trail closures or safety alerts before your visit.
  • Wear appropriate footwear for hiking and bring plenty of water to stay hydrated.
  • Be aware of park wildlife and maintain a safe distance at all times.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring your own supplies.
  • Cell service can be spotty, so plan accordingly and inform someone of your itinerary.
