Fly Fishing On Craig's Creek

Throughout Botetourt you'll find beautiful parks, farmland and wilderness where you can hike, bike, or relax and enjoy a picnic. It's a great way to explore our small towns, the countryside and the mountains of Virginia. The range of scenic driving and hiking/biking circuits is unlimited in all directions. For a true adventure, pick up a paddle and float along the headwaters of the scenic James River.

 

The unspoiled beauty of the river is more accessible than ever through the Upper James River Water Trail.

 

Our many rivers and streams offer great fishing opportunities, and National Forest affords good horseback riding and trail rides. Botetourt County features several golf courses in some of nature's finest settings. They are a short drive from Downtown Roanoke, and offer a unique and challenging experience for all levels of play.

 

Lovers of the great outdoors will fall in love with Botetourt County.  The Blue Ridge Parkway " the nation's longest national park " offers some of the most scenic cycling opportunities in the mid-Atlantic.  Hikers and backpackers will enjoy our stretch of the Appalachian Trail, the most famous hiking trail in the country.
