Waterrock Knob Trail

For a steep hike with great views along the way, Waterrock Knob Trail will literally take your breath away.

A 1.2-mile roundtrip hike will take you to the top of the 6,292-foot summit. The vigorous climb gains 412 feet in elevation and features great views along the way. At the top, there are several vantage points where you can see up to 50 miles out on a clear day to the Smokies and Maggie Valley below.
