• Humpback Rocks - Afton, Virginia

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Situated just 6 miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway's northern terminus, Humpback Rocks is an essential stop not only for its excellent visitor center but also for the reconstructed 19th century Humpback Rocks Farm. During the summer months the farm is staffed by costumed guides who grow crops, bake bread and demonstrate traditional mountain crafts.
