“Spectacular view”
Review of Howard Knob

Reviewed September 4, 2013

The view of the town of Boone and Appalachia College was awesome. My sister in law had been there and insisted we drives up. We took a picnic and spent a few hours there. I can only imagine the breathtaking view when the foilsge us at its peak. If ever in Boone would make it a must.

Overlooks the small mountain town of Boone NC. Good views across to Grandfather Mountain as well as the surrounding area. There is a 2 mile running event each fall called The Knob which starts in Boone and finishes at the top. Around 1000' of elevation gain, similar to Grandfather.

A twisting drive, not well marked, is worth the effort. Park the car at the top of Howard's Knob, and follow the short path to the view that will impress all ages and dispositions. Boone and its environs are laid before you, and you'll want to absorb the feast for the eyes which includes downtown, the growing ASU campus and the surrounding mountains. Take 30 minutes and do this!

Gorgeous place to visit. If you aren't comfortable with curvy, winy roads hold on to your hat!!!!! Nice for picnics.
