Big Walker Lookout
Big Walker Lookout is a scenic attraction in Southwest Virginia; at an elevation of 3,405 feet, the Lookout affords one of the most spectacular views of the Appalachian Mountains. Looking out over the patterned farms of Virginia in one direction and the untouched wilderness in another, you'll find it hard to believe that the views are real. As if the mountains' natural height weren't enough, Big Walker Lookout features an observation tower that puts you another 100 feet higher. Climb above the treetops to enjoy a view beyond belief. On a clear day, you'll even be able to see five states. The Big Walker lookout is part of a State Civil War Trail that commemorates the Toland's raid from Tazewell to Wytheville and Saltville. The BW Country Store is open every weekend all summer long. The store features the collective works of over 25 artisans, homemade jams, pickles and relishes and the hand dipped ice cream cones. Bluegrass and gospel concerts are held at least once a month.
