Buffalo Mountain is one of the most significant natural areas in Virginia. It boasts an amazing 13 rare plant occurences, 3 rare animal occurences, and 6 significant natural communities. The combination of high-elevation (3,971 feet), wind-exposed openings at the summit, and magnesium rich soils make it unlike any place else in the Commonwealth. And we were bold enough to climb to the summit of Buffalo Mountain were the view is really spectacular, you can see Pilot Mountain in NC, among other views, it’s well worth the climb, a bit steep in certain places but certain to make you fell great once you reach the top, mission accomplished.
