Things to do in Lynchburg, VA

Travel medical professionals to the rescue

(Which positions? We’re glad you asked: ICU, PCU, Med. Surg., MICU, SICU, Neuro, CVICU and Oncology. You can search these positions or apply directly below.) As travelers take on the city, we thought you might like quick reference to a few things to do while you’re in town (in addition to making some new travel buddies).


Be Free (and pay nothing) in Nature

Appalachian National Scenic Trail: This is a nicely maintained trail with mostly moderate grades—great for those of you new to hiking or if you just feel like taking it easy.

Devil’s Marbleyard: Like steep inclines? Devil’s Marbleyard is for you! It’s about a 45-minute hike to the top, which provides beautiful views and a great place to explore for a bit.

Flat Top Trail: This trail is more strenuous than most. It’s peaks at 4,001 feet and is covered in scattered rock outcrops. Although, after making the 4.4-mile stretch, you can relax a little at the Otter Picnic Area.
