The scenic Cove Mountain area spans
from a stretch along the James River to the top of Cove Mountain, which
is covered with azaleas and wildflowers in season. The area contains
about 238 acres of possible old growth. Below the main ridge line, there
are various intriguing spur trails, coves, and dry ridges. Several swift
creeks on Cove Mountain are tributaries to Jennings Creek, one of Virginia's
most important trout fisheries.
