Joins National Forest – Plentiful Wildlife – Great Hunting
Here is your chance to own a great piece of property that joins the George Washington National Forest! Build a home or hunting cabin and enjoy over 50,000 acres of public land right off of the back of the lot. This is a quiet, heavily treed, gently rolling lot with a mix of large pines and hardwoods. There is a small creek running through the middle of the property to provide a water source for the wildlife. The gently rolling terrain makes for easy recreational activities. There is good road frontage to easily access the lot. There are very few opportunities left to own a property like this. Must see to fully appreciate! Will not last long and priced below county assessment.
About George Washington National Forest:
The George Washington and Jefferson National Forests are U.S. National Forests that combine to form one of the largest areas of public land in the Eastern United States. They cover 1.8 million acres (7,300 km2) of land in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Approximately 1 million acres (4,000 km2) of the forest are remote and undeveloped and 139,461 acres (564 km2) have been designated as wilderness areas, which eliminates future development. The forests are popular hiking, mountain biking, and hunting destinations. The Appalachian Trail extends for 330 miles (530 km) from the southern end of Shenandoah National Park through the forest and along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The forest is within a two-hour drive for over ten million people and thus receives large numbers of visitors, especially in the region closest to Shenandoah National Park.
