Smart View Trail is an easy to moderate 2.6-mile loop around the Smart View Picnic Area, offering good views into Virginia’s Piedmont area. The trail is level for the most part and is generally dry and smooth underfoot. For most of the 2.6 miles, the trail passes through mature woods and has a good display of wildflowers in April and May. Several signs mark access points from the picnic area to the trail. Allow two hours for this hike.
