Buchanan County hosts three sites of the Wildlife and Birding Trail System with six adjoining sites in neighboring Dickenson County. The trails are a part of the 340 sites with 34 loops that make up the Mountain Area of the state’s SW Virginia trail system..
The trails in Buchanan County consist of Compton Mtn./Horn Mtn., Poplar Gap/Sunset Hollow and the Breaks Interstate Park which is shared with Dickenson County.
These sites are part of the Lonesome Pine Loop. Each site provides mountaintop birding year round as well as Spring and Fall Migrants. These sites and the area between each are prime locations for migrating warblers as well as many other species.
