Welcome to Norton, the smallest incorporated city in the Commonwealth of Virginia! Centrally located at the intersection of two main highways - U.S. 23 and U.S. Route 58 Alternate - and near the crossroads of three states, we offer an abundance of natural, cultural, and historic landmarks. There are ample opportunities to dine, shop, and stay awhile in our charming mountain community nestled beneath High Knob, the highest point in the Cumberland Mountains. We invite you to Get Outside in Norton! See the links below to help plan your visit.
We’ve got all your Outdoor Adventures covered! The city's Flag Rock Recreation Area and its close proximity to the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests' Clinch Ranger District mean there are ample opportunities to mountain bike, hike, trail run, fish, boulder/rock climb, paddle, and more.
