Ascent Trip ReportFish Hatchery to Spy Rock hike is rather bland (most of it is on a fire road), and it is all uphill. But the view at the top is impressive, probably the best I've seen in Virginia (including Sharp Top). Love the rock scramble as well. 360 degrees with ALL the major peaks of Amherst and Nelson County in view.
A must see. 5 for the ascent quality but a 10 for the peak itself.
