From Pamplin City to Elam is about a 3 mile, easy section of the High Bridge Trail that begins near an old Kyanite Mineral storage building just off of Heights School Road and about a mile east of Pamplin City. Pamplin City was once the home of the largest clay pipe factory in the world and is now on the registry of National Landmarks. Parking may be found just off of Heights School Road and you will also find picnic tables and bathrooms on your travels. Along this section of the trail you’ll travel along tall Virginia Pines and may even spot deer and red fox along the way. Be aware of private driveways and crossings.
