    Eric Sterwerf completed Twin Knobs Trail

    If you're looking for great views or unique geological formations then this trail isn't for you, but if you love other aspects of walking in the forest, then you may be pleasantly surprised like I was. I'm really into mycology, so finding loads of chanterelle mushrooms on the way to the top of the knob automatically made this hike enjoyable for me.

    A enjoyable easy short trail. I took 11 Boy Scouts on this and they all loved it!

    Crowded and overused, but the scenery was great.

    Had a wonderful night up above the clouds at the top. Saw plenty of wildlife, not as many people as other reviewers experienced and the shelter wasn't as scary as some of the legends make it out to be. The best sunrise I've ever seen in my life was at the summit. I loved it.

    On the way a group of deer kept me company. Made it to the top just in time to set up camp and watch the sunset. Completely alone at night, watching the towns twinkling far below made me feel like I was the king of the world!

    Very muddy when I went and was expecting to get much closer to the falls, but enjoyable and beautiful none the less.

    Really wonderful view up top. The wife and I had breakfast at Skyland and headed up straight from there. A great morning!

    Another nice hike on the edge of Appalachia! Exploring this area was neat. Abandoned structures, small caves and unique wildlife are some things to look forward to when walking this trail. I was confused at first because I kept hearing a cracking noise off in the distance. The noise ended up being sheets of ice on the river breaking off and slamming into other sheets of ice. Very cool!

    Hiked this on a frigid snowy day in January and it was still very enjoyable. Beautiful view, waterfalls, peaceful meadows and some abandoned buildings to explore, very nice! My only complaint is that I wandered around the parking lot for 20 minutes trying to find the actual start of the trail, so be warned, if there's snow on the ground the trail is very hard to see.

    Short walk with one of the best views in the park, I love seeing it in the winter when everything is covered in snow.

    Very nice little hike to a beautiful waterfall. Saw a couple of salamanders, so that was cool.

    My wife was the one who suggested this trail and I'm glad she did! It was fun climbing over the boulders and the view at the top was great!

    One of my favorite places on earth. Diverse, unique and absolutely beautiful.

    Very beautiful, fairy easy trail. It's quite overgrown in certain areas but that's part of the experience. Laying out of the edge of the lake at night, looking at the stars with the sound of the loons was the best part.

    I nice short trail featuring some impressive trees. My favorite time to hike here is at dusk when you are likely to hear barred owls. You can connect this trail with other nearby trails to make it a much longer experience if you'd like, though I'm not sure if the park recommends it.

    An unmarked trail behind my house meets up with this trail so I'm always hiking it. It's a great place to escape and relax for an hour or so. The best season to walk this trail is definitely spring, right when the trout lilies come out. I love coming here after an evening spring rain because seemingly nobody else is in the park and the wood thrushes sing their song to you.
