My first time running or being on the AT! Had to hike a little of the rocky steep section in that first mile. Great time, will go back again and go a bit further north on the AT!

very nice, moderate hike. we did the AP up and the fire road back which took about 4.5 hours. Fire road much easier path. I like the sort stretches of steep elevation change and then nice meandering paths between. Wonderful views at the top. definitely worth it. we started about 8:45 and parking lot full. ar 1:30 when we finished it was a zoo in the parking lot.

awesome hike, breathtaking views

Holy moly - what a hard trail - so fun though! Great hike into the shelter area, camp overnight, and hike back out the next morning. THERE IS NO DRINKING WATER AVAILABLE AT SHELTERS! There is a nice stream very close by though, lots of water available just make sure you bring tablets or a filter and you’ll be good to go :)

Great hike, great view

loved this hike. beautiful veiws a good hike up. go early if you want to take pictures on the rock, it gets crowded fast.

Love this trail. Love getting the kids off their computers and just hiking. Friendly people on trail.

BRIDGE IS OUT! We tried to do this hike this morning but the bridge about .7 miles in is washed out (probably by hurricane Michael). We will try again in a few months.

This is the classic AT trail in Virginia and a great one at that. A little muddy in parts due to recent rain, but trail was great. Jammed on a beautiful fall Saturday, but that’s to be expected. Made it to the top in about two hours (solo hiker, light load). About the same back (took it a little slower). A must do.

Well marked trail with lots in a short hike. Waterfall, river, and great rock formations and springs.

One of the Iconic stops on the AT. good hike not too difficult. Fire road gives easy access up and back, but highly recommend Tinker Cliffs also.

Started at Kentuck Campground (very close by). Trail was relatively muddy a d slick but well marked. The sections which are distant from the river are unremarkable. The portion along the river and Cucumber Falls make the trek worthwhile. I did the entire trail and cut through town, across the river on the Graet Allegheny Passage trail and got back on the trail to return to my campsite. That worked well but last mile was a lungbuster.

Great hike! Good exercise, clean trails, friendly people. Plenty of parking at the entrance. It was not crowded the day we went, however, it was a bit foggy so once we made it to the top, there wasn't much you could see.

Did this with my sons... it was a well marked trail, and we didn’t get lost or turned around as I tend to do! Take plenty of water and watch out for copperheads. We saw a big one that blended in perfectly with the sand on the trail.

Hiked all the way past Black Rock cliff to Pogo shelter and back. It's kind of ridiculous how many people hike this considering there isn't anything really special about this hike.

Really nice hike. Especially cool on a foggy day.

My family loves this trail for a quick workout and great scenery and views. The trial has a moderate climb in the beginning and flattens out near the top. Wonderful sights of water, and forests with a spectacular view of the valley and of the river of rocks below the outlook.

Definitely one of our favorite trails. Great trek, great views. We really enjoyed this one. We took the fire trail down to give our dogs a break. We learned you can also take the fire trail up.

great views ! spent the night at Campbell camp and watched the sunrise .

This is a phenomenal hike—highly enjoyable and satisfying. The trail is challenging for the first third of a mile and the last mile plus before the knob. The two miles in the middle (along the fire road) are very easy and relaxing. They are also satisfying b/c they are along the ridge and, while in the trees and shaded, offer glimpses of the magnificent views to come. Then the destination, the Knob, is spectacular, breathtaking both for its geology, with the intimidating overhangs, and the views that rival any you’ll encounter anywhere. For an added treat, there’s an excellent novel in which the Knob figures prominently: “Prayers the Devil Answers” by Sharyn McCrumb. Adds an extra level of interest to the hike.

Great hike. Views are great. Extremely crowded on the weekends. The fire road is also a good option to get to the top.

Great hike with some of the best views I’ve seen!

My favorite hike yet. McAfee Knob challenges you in ways you wouldn’t know possible! Plan to spend several hours here as the trail itself is 3.9 miles out and 3.9 back. It took us 3.5 hours with minimal time at the top. Loved every second! Already planning on coming back soon!

Absolutely gorgeous! Landscape changes abound. A great hike when you’ve been stuck inside for way too long.

Great day hike with an amazing overlook with plenty of seating and space.

I loved this hike

Good hike. Good views.

Having never been here before, I expected more than I got. However, I did take the fire trail instead of the actual terrain trail so I walked on sand or gravel the entire time! The view at the top was a little crowded with many people there, but it was really relaxing nonetheless. Would go back.
