Virginia is one of the hardest states of the USA to hitch in, particularly the Southern part of it. Nobody will stop for you, and the cops will be very nasty if you get on the freeway.

Not so difficult but definitely stay off the interstate freeways. It is legal to hitchhike on other roads. Good state for train hopping. Almost all trains lead in or out of Roanoke.

The Appalachian Mountain region of the western part of the state makes for the easiest hitching around, particularly near the Appalachian Trail where hikers regularly hitch to and from nearby towns.
