Need to Know

Look carefully for rattle snakes during summer months. The trail is a very narrow, unmaintained singletrack that's often nearly hidden by vegetation. They like to sun on the rocks and will make there way up to them.

Description

The trail isn't really great for running but the view from Rocky Knob is well worth the short side trip.

Nice "view" of the trail leading up to Rocky Knob and what you can expect.
