9 - Lewis Fork Trailhead

How to get there - From the Fox Creek AT Crossing, continue on VA 603 for 0.8 miles. Look for the small “Lewis Fork” sign on the left and parking on the right.


Things to do - This trailhead provides access to the Lewis Fork Wilderness Area, one of four wilderness areas in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area. The wilderness boundary is a short walk through the fence and across the open area. A wood bridge carries the trail across Lewis Fork of Fox Creek at the boundary. The trail up the mountain from the boundary was once the location of a logging railroad.
