Elk Knob State Park
Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Todd
Attraction details

We went hiking here last week and it was great. They recently finished the trail. The view from the top was spectacular. The new potty was also a great add on. We love the charcoal grills. They are still in great condition. If you love to hike and cook out, Elk Knob is a must!

This newer park is a great area. It has three hikes located on this mountain. We took the Summit Hike which takes you to the highest point in Wautaga County. The hike is a moderate 1.9 mile hike to the summit. It is very well maintained and well marked. It has resting benches along the way made out of both logs and rocks. After enjoying this hike, the picnic area is a great place to enjoy a lunch. They also have a small gift shop in the rangers station. Very nice people here! It's a must visit park for a good workout without taking a strenuous hike (we saw a group of 70 yr old women walking to the summit) You can do it!!! Enjoy!

We visited this park at the end of October 2013. What a gorgeous place! Great place to hike and just explore. Best of all it's free!!

We visited this park after eating in nearby Boone (Mint. Cuisine of India--fantastic!) and hiked the summit trail.
The park is small, but beautiful. There are 11 picnic tables underneath shade trees (the entire park is shady) and backpack camping is available.
The summit trail is well maintained (crushed and larger dark gravel base edged by large rocks for most of the almost 2 mile trail) and there are stone seats periodically along the trail.
We happened to choose a rainy afternoon to make the hike so were not able to get a view from the summit--so will have to come back on a clear day.
