Very close to our house and it's along the water. It's a seven-mile, year-round public access walking trail between Lexington and Buena Vista, owned by Virginia Military Institute. The Trail easily breaks up for shorter hikes, with multiple entrances along the way. Its level path, shady stretches and lovely scenery make it an ideal outing for families.

One of the area’s premiere trails, Mount Pleasant rewards hikers with panoramic views. The summit has two distinct rocky overlooks that offer panoramic views. There are several primitive campsites near the summit as well. Mount Pleasant Trail is a loop. Upon parking, the trail goes both left and right (both blazed blue). The trail to the right is not as steep, follows an old fire road, and has several small streams to cross. The trail to the left is steeper and dry. Both trails lead to a saddle and the summit trail, and they are about the same distance.

Want to scale the side of a rock face? If you do, I highly suggest adding this adventure to your list. Hiking to the marbleyard and back to the parking lot will have you at a 3 mile journey. How many hours will it take to hike the trail and tackle Antietam Quartzite boulders larger than cars you may ask? A strenuous 4 hours. Keep in mind there are no bathroom facilities provided. Also great for camping.
