Price Mountain, Sulphur Ridge Loop

4.9 miles, moderate terrain
>15 miles from Roanoke, $2.50 carpool fee

Located along the border of Craig and Botetourt County, about 15 miles north of Roanoke, this loop hike offers a great sense of isolation for being so close to Roanoke. The trailhead begins on VA 606 and descends for one mile into a quiet valley. After a creek crossing, the route climbs to the top of Price Mountain on the Sulphur Ridge Trail. At the crest of the mountain, the route turns right onto the Price Mountain Trail. The trail then descends along the ridgeline, with views into the Craig Creek valley, to return to the trailhead.
