Where is a good place to go Back Country camping in Virginia?

My cousin and I, along with a few others are planning a trip to go Back country camping and would like to know of a good place to do so in Virginia.

Martin answers:

Here’s a trail along the AT that had pretty high ratings on trails.com…

Furnace Mountain / Trayfoot Mountain Overnight Loop (20.6 Miles):
“If you like mountaintop views and camping along streams, this loop is for you. Head north on the Appalachian Trail (AT) and turn west toward Austin Mountain, with many views of your destination. Camp in the woods along Madison Run and then climb up to Furnace Mountain for more views. Walk along the rest of Trayfoot Mountain and drop to Paine Run for more streamside camping. Pass historic Blackrock Springs and culminate your trip at the view from Blackrock.”
