Whitetop Mountain is the 2nd highest Mountain in VA with an elevation of 5520 feet. It's the highest point in VA that you can access via a vehicle.  From the top elevation - Buzzards Rock, on a clear day, you can see VA, West VA, TN, and/or NC.  The hike may be a little difficult for younger children or inexperienced hikers.
