Big Walker Lookout is Virginia’s oldest privately owned scenic attraction, and is located in Wythe County in Southwest Virginia! At an elevation of 3,405 feet, Big Walker Lookout affords one of the most spectacular views of the Appalachian Mountains to our visitors. Looking out over the patterned farms of Virginia in one direction and the untouched wilderness in another, you’ll find it hard to believe that the views are real. As if the mountains’ natural height weren’t enough, Big Walker Lookout features an observation tower that puts you another 100 feet higher. Climb above the treetops to enjoy a view beyond belief, “Where only the Birds See More”!
We are a family owned and operated business, and have been serving visitors here since 1947. Now being operated by 2nd and 3rd generations of the Kime Family, we feel that the visitors that come to Big Walker Lookout & the BW Country Store are like family, and we hope to continue that tradition, which has been going strong for over 70 years! So. whether you are planning a trip to the Wytheville area, just passing through on your way somewhere else, or you’re a local that lives just down the road, be sure to make Big Walker Lookout & BW Country Store a stop on your trip and let us make you a part of the family!!
