4.4/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web
Whitetop Mountain is the second highest mountain in the U.S. state of Virginia, after nearby Mount Rogers. It is located at the juncture of Grayson, Smyth, and Washington Counties in the state of Virginia. Whitetop was the location of the White Top Folk Festival from 1932 to 1939, with the exception of 1937. The mountain is also unique for the fact that it represents an ecological "island" of flora and fauna commonly found much further north than Virginia, such as old growth red spruce and other northern softwoods.
