The One Hikeable Lake In Virginia That’s Simply Breathtaking In The Fall
Virginia’s lakes are absolutely stunning year-round, yet to experience them during the fall season is something else altogether. As the leaves transform, their beautiful colors are reflected in the water and the result is breathtaking. To experience this phenomenon, you’ll want to head to Hungry Mother State Park in Marion, where you can hike around the water.
Let’s take a look at the adventure that awaits:
Hungry Mother State Park is located in southwestern Virginia, at 2854 Park Blvd, Marion, VA 24354.
The heart of the park is a 108-acre lake surrounded by the mountains. During the fall, the scene of the lake and surrounded foliage is like something from a painting.
There are endless ways to enjoy the natural beauty of the fall season at Hungry Mother State Park, all of which incorporate this breathtaking body of water.
If you're up for a real adventure, you can embark on the Lake Trail Loop, a 5.5-mile circuit that follows the perimeter of the lake.
Along the way, the trail makes plenty of diversions to offer hikers elevated views of the foliage and the surrounding mountains. It's a breathtaking experience for hikers of all ages.
The trail has a mostly gentle terrain, but there are stretches of climbing once the trail crosses the dam along the far side of the lake.
Whether you're visiting Hungry Mother State Park for this epic lake trail or are simply looking for a peaceful stroll through the woods, you won't be disappointed by this seasonal adventure.
