Salt Pond Ridge Trail

  Spending too much time indoors got you down? No problem, Salt Pond Ridge Trail in Bath County, Virginia is just what you need. You'll have to go far from Roanoke to get to Salt Pond Ridge Trail but when you hike it you're always having a good time. Camping at Hidden Valley Campground is always a tremendous experience, and let's not forget Left Prong Wilson Creek which is a stream that you may run into during your stay. There are some good whitewater spots
    on Wilson Creek, and during your trip here you'll meet some people from Bacova for sure. Whitewater paddling is not for everybody but if it's for you then we recommend Cowpasture River. Camping is available at Virginia Power; naturally
