Lover’s Leap

Page

Lover’s Leap is located in Patrick County, Virginia on U.S. 58 just east of the small town of Vesta. The overlook displays several miles of the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains. Folklore indicates that in the 1600s, white settlers arrived in the area inhabited by indians. The son of a settler fell in love with the indian Chief’s daughter. They fell in love and secretly would meet, but were shunned upon the discovery of their love. They went to this spot and jumped to ensure they would forever be in love.
