Scenic Goshen Pass - Goshen, Virginia

In August, we took a weekend to explore Clifton Forge, Virginia and several scenic waterfalls in West Virginia.  On the way to Clifton Forge, we took a detour through scenic Goshen Pass.  The Maury River cut the pass through Little North Mountain.  The road through the pass has a number of spots where you can pull over, park and explore the areas.  Judging by the number of fishermen I saw on the river, the fishing must be good!

The Maury River is named for Matthew Fontain Maury.  Maury was an American astronomer, historian, oceanographer, meteorologist, cartographer, author, geologist, and educator.

Goshen Pass is located near Lexington, VA.  Where you can take Virginia State Route 39 to see the pass.
