Ravens Roost Overlook, Milepost 10.7
Offers views of Torrey Ridge and the Shenandoah Valley to the west. To the left a path heads from the overlook to a broad rock ledge which is a typical raven’s roost. Ravens and buzzards are frequently seen from this point. At the base of the ridge are the ruins of the old Torrey iron furnace, significant until after the 1880s.
