Only 20 minutes away, west on Elon Road (VA-130), is the Blue Ridge Parkway @ Otter Creek (MP 60). Another 5 minutes west from there and you arrive at the James River @ Snowden, VA. Here you can enjoy a pleasurably and easy hike by going south across the river on the Appalachian Trail (AT) and along the river, following the AT up Matt's Creek. Or, going north on the AT, try the strenuous 4 mile hike to Fuller Rocks @ 2,472 ft. for spectacular views of the James River Valley and the city of Lynchburg . There is also good trout fishing (stocked in season) as you ascend on the AT on a little mountain stream, Rocky Row Run. You will also find parking & a public boat ramp right where this stream enters the James.
About the owner: We are fun & loving couple who have fully renovated an 1850's farmhouse overlooking Tobacco Row Mountain in Amherst county, VA. We love to hike and explore the AT and Blue Ridge parkway, both only 20 minutes away. We have begun a native plant garden and a wildflower meadow. Janet loves 'her birds' as she sits and drinks her coffee or tea at the kitchen window. Dick is a fern fanatic and has plant many species in the garden. Since we are still both working in Richmond, VA and are hardly there , we began sharing Oak Lawn in 2011. We are pleased to offer our second home for others to enjoy should your travel destination include Lynchburg or Central VA.
