Biking1. Wide Open Spaces – This region of Virginia is unspoiled and uncrowded. Most of the land in Bath County is forested, including National Forest and State Park land. That means plenty of room to roam. There are rivers and lakes for paddling and fishing, trails for hiking, biking or horseback riding, and plenty of back roads for taking a scenic drive.

In Bath County, you practically feel the stress disappear. There is no traffic — not even a single stoplight in the entire county — just scenic back roads. You can enjoy a spa treatment, a round of golf, a walk in the woods, a day of fly fishing or you can just sit on the porch and listen to the birds.
