Jackson Trail is located near Covington, Virginia. The trail is primarily used for hiking.
Pretty area. There is some overgrowth but the forest is currently maintaining trails in the area so it's sure to improve in the coming weeks and months. Starting from the "parking lot" (more of a gravel parking circle), it's a steady/ hard climb. If you stick with it (trails connects to Oliver Mountain Trail) you'll be rewarded with mountains views, lake and views of the dam. All in all, it's pretty. It was worth the hike.
