Overview

Douthat State Park was named one of the nation’s 10 best by Outside Family Vacation Guide. It is one of the original six Virginia State Parks. Nestled in Virginia’s Alleghany Highlands, Douthat features some of Virginia’s most outstanding scenery and trails.

Need to Know

If you plan to stay overnight there are several campsite options as well as cabins built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The trails are multi-use and are also used by mountain bikers.

Description

Blue Suck Falls is a loop hike that gives you a true sense of the park. You'll hike through Mountain Laurel, cross streams, and be rewarded with both a waterfall and scenic vista at the Tuscarora Overlook and cabin.

When you're done with your hike, take a cool dip in the lake, relax on the sandy beach, and grab a bite to eat at the restaurant.
