Just five miles from the start of the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, Humpback Rocks illustrates the blend of cultural and natural features that defines the rest of the Parkway. Hike to high rock outcroppings or explore 1890s farm buildings relocated during Parkway construction. Start your trip at the visitor center and learn about the many aspects of mountain life that defy stereotypes. Talk to a ranger for information and tour the museum’s exhibits about mountain life. Open seasonally.

Historic Mountain Farm: During Parkway construction, landscape architects collected historic buildings from the surrounding area and placed them at Humpback Rocks for convenient viewing. Although not in their original location, these buildings help tell the story of early life in the mountains. Tour the collection on a short walk from the visitor center. Buildings open and staffed in summer.
