Alpha Land Realty buys land in Tazewell County, Virginia because of the many development opportunities it provides for All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) tourists, campers, and outdoor enthusiasts.
Tazewell County is a beautiful mountainous area in Southwest Virginia. Located in the Appalachian Mountains, the county is part of the Allegheny Plateau and provides plenty of beautiful scenery and outdoor activities for nature lovers, campers, ATV and off-road vehicle riders, hikers, hunters, and more.
While it's 520 square mile area is mostly rural, there are many towns in the county that provide ample shopping and dining destinations, as well as several extraordinarily scenic locations to visit, like Burke's Garden; a large oval bowl-shaped valley (the highest in Virginia at 3000 feet above sea level) that was formed when limestone caverns underground collapsed.
The southern border of the county lies partially in Jefferson National Forest, one of the U.S. National Forests and identified as one of only 67 “Mountain Treasures” by the Wilderness Society.
Tazewell County's economic development depended heavily on coal and iron mining, with the construction of railroads enabling these resources to thrive. However, since many of those industries have declined, ATV Tourism has become one of the biggest revenue resources in the area. Some of the most popular ATV attractions are:
Spearhead Trails of Southwest Virginia: Winding ATV trails, hiking and biking spots and an up and coming equestrian system makes Spearhead Trails a world-class destination with over 500 planned miles of trail for any skill level.
The Real McCoy Cabins: Conveniently located between West Virginia's Hatfield McCoy Trails and the Spearhead Trails of Southwest Virginia, The Real McCoy Cabins are the premier vacation destination for the off-road enthusiast.
Trailhead ATV Resort: Nestled in the heart of southwestern Virginia, Trailhead ATV Resort offers the perfect friends and family lodging location for ATV and dirt bike enthusiasts with a selection of cabins, cottages and RV/tent sites.
The OP ATV Trail: Spearhead Trails’ Original Pocahontas (OP) OHV trail system is located near the historic town of Pocahontas, Virginia in Tazewell County. The OP trail provides visitors with an exciting “deep woods” experience along with relaxing rest stops and stunning vistas.
