Clinch Ranger District


The Clinch Ranger District, located in the Cumberland Mountains section of the Appalachian Plateau in southwest Virginia, has mountainous terrain, deep valleys, and fresh bodies of water where visitors can enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities. The district has four campgrounds, four lakes, and plenty of rivers and streams for whitewater kayaking and fishing. In addition, it has over 100 miles of multi-use trail. Some popular landmarks are High Knob Tower and Birch Knob Observation Tower, both of which provide panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
