Flat Top Mountain Virginia - Unofficial Trail Guide
Peaks of Otter Overlooks Blue Ridge Parkway
Flat Top Mountain Virginia is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway and is one of the three peaks of Peaks of Otter. As with any trail on the Blue Ridge, I always recommend checking for road closures on National Park Service's website as they happen on occasion.
Editor's Note: We try hard to be accurate in our reporting but please always use multiple references before driving to a trailhead as trail amenities and conditions can always change.
