Staunton's Betsy Bell & Mary Gray mountains ... take a hike!

Staunton is unique in that it is dominated by two small side-by-side mountains within the city limits that have not been developed. Named Betsy Bell and Mary Gray after two Irish women from the 1600s, Betsy Bell offers a natural area that overlooks the immediate area (Wal-Mart, Lowe's, restaurants and businesses) and beyond to the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east.

Even if they are small (elevation 1,195 ft), the road up the mountain is steep and can be difficult.

Take a hike during your lunch hour or check it out if you're in the area. Map.
