Humpback Rocks


About 6 miles into your BRP drive, you’ll see a greenstone outcropping (or hump), jutting 3,000 feet into the air. In the 1840s, this natural landmark helped guide wagon trains over the Howardsville Turnpike through the Appalachian Mountains. Today, it’s a BRP landmark, with a seasonal visitors center and farm museum surrounded by 3,000 forested acres. Stop by to see the one-room log cabin, several outbuildings that reflect late-1800s architecture, and costumed interpreters demonstrating weaving and gardening.
