To provide an in-person elk viewing opportunity, the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources worked with Southwest Virginia Sportsmen and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to help provide an Elk Viewing Area, which contains multiple elk viewing platforms on a Buchanan County-property in Vansant, accessible from the Southern Gap Outdoor Adventure Center. A designated site on the Virginia Bird & Wildlife Trail, these three sheltered platforms have bench seating, are accessible, and overlook managed wildlife habitat areas that provide visitors the opportunity to view elk, white-tailed deer, turkey, grassland birds, butterflies, and the occasional black bear. An estimated 8,000-10,000 visitors frequent this area every year to view elk and other wildlife, a number that is sure to only grow.

The best times to see elk are during September and October around dusk and dawn hours.
