Buffalo Mountain Natural Area Preserve

One of the most significant natural areas in Virginia. Buffalo Mountain boasts an amazing 13 rare plant occurences, 3 rare animal occurences, and 6 significant natural communities. The combination of high-elevation (3,971 feet), wind-exposed openings at the summit, and magnesium rich soils make it unlike any place else in the Commonwealth.

Public access facilities include a small parking area and a steep 1 mile hiking trail to the summit.
