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 hikers to sit and have a bite to eat and relax before your hike back to the car.

Short Hike: 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!
