We have been to Rocky Knob many times for family reunions. The area is beautiful and nature abounds. There are lots of picnic tables as well as a larger shelter. Restrooms are available. For those who like to hike, the trails are mildly strenuous but allow you to see even more of the beauty of the mountains. The large field is great for frisbee, volleyball, or football games.

We did the easier loop then headed on the more challenging and rocky loop. It was too much for my brother in law so we only did a chunk of it. Also a great place to watch the sunrise! We love this area. It was hot!

We did the 3 mile loop, and plan to trek the 10.8 mile hike a little later in Aug. the views are breathtaking! Some points you cross over a creek so be prepared and wear proper shoes. The rec area is very nicely kept and there is a ton of room to go up there for a picnic to enjoy the Mountain View. This is a definite must for all outdoorsy people.

Rocky Knob is directly along the Very Scenic “Blue Ridge Parkway” a few miles north of Mabry Mill. If you are traveling along the Blue Ridge Parkway, take time to stop at Rocky Knob, but also include the nearby village of Floyd & Mabry Mill. The Visitor Center is along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Visitor Center is small but is staffed. We inquired regarding hiking away from the more crowded areas. The staff person recommended a scenic drive off the ridge to the valley where a trail is found going up a valley. The trail follows a beautiful spring fed stream up the valley. Eventually you come upon a wide area in the valley which at one time served as a homestead. Today this spot has picnic tables, bathrooms, etc.. Continue up the valley which will still follow the valley floor. A beautiful, quiet and scenic fairly easy hike up & back!

You can hear how loud you'll sigh from this breathing viewpoint! This countyside has a 365 degree view.
