Description

Rocky Knob Overlook is a rock outcropping overlooking a massive view of the valley below and the 7 Sisters mountains. This is a great place for runners to sit and have a bite to eat and relax before your run back to the car.

Short Run: Take the side trail off of Old Mitchell Toll Road. Look closely or you'll miss the trail markers! The short but tough Rocky Knob Trail will lead you to the rock overlook!

Minor Issues
Update
Muddy, Fallen Trees - Pretty consistent mud throughout, just below ankle deep in some spots. Minor trail washout due to rainfall on greater elevation change. Poor footing on steep climbs, especially on rocks and roots, due to recent rainfall.

Muddy - It rained 8/5 while I was there. The trail was very muddy in places. One small part was a giant puddle. Still very passable
