So you’ve hiked up Iron Mountain and now you’re 3800 feet above the sea, and guess what? You’re dead tired. What’s better than hiking back down? Pitching a tent at the Comers Rock Recreation Area, a campground in Virginia’s Jefferson National Forest near the border with North Carolina. Small, primitive, and extremely secluded, these mountaintop sites give you access to a historic log cabin with stone fireplace, and offer panoramic views from the Comers Rock Overlook, a former fire tower. Less than two miles away, Hale Lake is a mountainside pool popular among fishers who prefer peace & quiet while they angle, a great spot to chill after a long hike in the summertime. The grounds are open year-round, but the road to them gets real icy in colder months, so watch your back (tires, that is—four wheel drive helps).
