Can anyone suggest an overnight hike centered on Roanoke, VA?

What about McAfee Knob and Tinker Cliffs? (For a dayhike, anyway.)

If you can make it a one way hike try from Daleville (US 220 I believe) to VA 311 (parking for McAffee's Knob). Its only about 10 miles per day, but it takes you over Tinker cliffs and McAffee's Knob. This was my first AT overnight trip. The Lambert Meadows shelter or campsite are about half way.

If you want a few more miles, you could continue over Dragon's Tooth and end your hike at VA620. This makes it just over 33 miles total. Staying at the Campbell Shelter/Pig Farm Campsite or John's Spring Shelter would be close to half way.
