Meet at Nature Center
Thursday, June 15
Half Day – Rainbow Road Easy Pace: Moderate
Full Day – Rocky Knob
Moderate; 13.1 miles total; 2900’ gain.
Rocky Knob was purchased by the Montreat Cottagers Association to protect this precious resource from possible future development. It is a wild and remote destination, and this hike has always been a Ranger favorite. We’ll ascend the Graybeard Trail and then pop over to the Mitchell Toll Road just above Dickey’s Loop. We’ll walk the Toll Road north to Rocky Knob, eat lunch at the knob, and then take a long rest and enjoy the excellent views of the North Fork watershed before returning to Montreat.
