Magical place, great scenery. Some of the most beautiful farms you have ever seen. Note: Store is closed, probably for good. Bring a picnic with you. Store at bottom of mountain does not have hot food.

One of the beautiful places of America, I have visited 46 states and still think it is one of the natural treasures of America. Fond memories from my childhood as we lived in the Garden for several years.

A beautiful place to live! Great for hiking (part of the Appalachian Trail runs around the rim), biking or just plain sightseeing. Truly a gorgeous geographical wonder and truly, God's Thumbprint"!!

One of the prettiest drives I've been on in a while. Even though the day was rainy and dreary and it was windy and cold it was breathtaking. Well worth the drive. Very curvy road but well worth the drive.

We rode motorcycles to this awesome place. Beautiful countryside, a bowl, surrounded by mountains. There's a curvy mountain road into Burke's Garden. It's nice to see God's creation untouched, for the most part, by man. There is a road that loops thru and you can...More

This is a wonderful, quiet and peaceful area just out of Tazewell, VA. It is a sunken geologic bowl that is tucked away by itself. You have to go looking for it. Once over the rim of the mountain you descend into the bowl and...More

We were on a motorcycle. And I assume you are asking about the bike trail. Try this phone number 276-762-0011. It's very beautiful in this part of Virginia. Have fun.

Take Exit #5 toward Tazewell. Stay on that road until first stop light, turn left and follow Rt. 61, passing hospital and YMCA. Stay on Rt.61 for several miles, turn right on Rt. 623 crossing mountain road to Burkes Garden.
