About: Mount Rogers is the highest point in the state of Virginia, USA, with a summit elevation of 5729 feet above mean sea level. It lies in Grayson County and Smyth County, Virginia, about 6.45 miles WSW of Troutdale, Virginia, within the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area and Jefferson National Forest. The mountain is named for William Barton Rogers, a Virginian educated at the College of William & Mary, who taught at William & Mary and the University of Virginia, became Virginia's first State Geologist, and went on to found the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The summit is most easily accessed from Grayson Highlands State Park by following the Appalachian Trail southbound for 3.5 miles to a blue-blazed trail leading to the summit, which is covered by trees and marked with two National Geodetic Survey triangulation station disks. Because the Appalachian Trail passes within a half mile of the summit, the area is especially popular with hikers.
