Our managing editors' favorite Hokie hikes

As Hokies enjoy their time on campus at Virginia Tech, they shouldn’t forget about the wonders waiting for them if they choose to venture into the mountains. Several of our favorite spots are located close to Blacksburg, and if you’re willing to make the hike — pun intended — some spectacular views are waiting a few hours away as well. Before beginning your journey into the wilderness, make sure to let your roommates or close friends know where you’re going, especially if you are more experienced and tend to hike alone. Popular spots like the Appalachian Trail are generally a safe place, but you should always take precautions to make sure your daytime hike does not turn into an unexpected overnight stay. Regardless of which hike you choose to go on, any of the ones listed below are sure to take your breath away — literally and metaphorically. And above all else, make sure to bring plenty of food and water to keep your energy up!

They should have read: The Nature Conservancy, which owns the preserve, calls it the second-highest waterfall in Virginia (some websites refer to it as the Bent Mountain Waterfall, or Bent Mountain Falls). The creek flows through a gorge that creates a series of furious rapids known as “The Kettles.”
