Flat Top Mountain Trail Va - 2021 Hiking Guide
Peaks of Otter Overlooks Blue Ridge Parkway
Flat Top Mountain Trail Va is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway and is one of the three peaks of Peaks of Otter. As with any trail on the Blue Ridge, I always recommend checking for road closures on National Park Service's website as they happen on occasion.
Editor's Note: We try hard to be accurate in our reporting but please always use multiple references before driving to a trailhead as trail amenities and conditions can always change.
Best Picture Locations
There are a bunch of great overlooks once you get to the top of Flat Top Mountain Trail, but one of my favorites was Cross Overlook about three quarters of the way up.
Flat Top Mountain Trail is a go-to trail not only at the Peaks of Otter but also the Blue Ridge Parkway. I feel this trail often gets overshadowed by Sharp Top Trail while still being a top hike around Roanoke.
