Scenic View/Photo Spot

Stop at Buck Hollow Overlook, facing east-northeast from an elevation of 2,710 ft (826 m), and look out over the mountains! Skinner Ridge is visible towards the left, while Buck Ridge makes its way from the right toward the center of the view. Beyond Buck Ridge is a town named Sperryville. Sperryville was established in 1820 along the Thornton River. The river provided necessary power for industrial operations, most notably the Smoot Tannery established in 1867.
