Great view! First 1.5 miles are the worst part- after that it's nice and flat.

Novice Hiker - was very rocky mostly through along with mud and water. Parts are overgrown. But it was a great hike! Really enjoyed the challenge and the view was a nice reward.

Great hike! Beautiful view and well marked. Very rocky. The steepest incline has loose rocks as well so wear good shoes. Hiked with 5 kids ages 5-11 and they did great! Saw some thru hikers but that was it. Parking is just on the side of the road but not far from the trail head.

I love this trail. It was a good workout (for me anyway) with a nice steady incline for a good part of the trail. The view was amazing. The way down may be a little rough if you have knee problems. Clean, no trash or graffiti. Lots of rocks up top.

Easy, albeit rocky, climb up to Dan's Pulpit. Heard quite a few hunters, so be sure to wear bright colors! The lower portion of the trail after the climb up was extremely muggy with lots of bugs.

Nice little hike. Good workout climbing to the pulpit. Saw some copperheads basking in the sun at the top as well. A little buggy because it’s been muggy and hot. Great length, wear sturdy shoes. Path is easy to follow.

For those about to rock we salute you. The majority of the trail is pretty rocky and you’re going to do a fair bit of scrambling. I took the extra trail to Bake Oven since it was a nice day. If you’ve been to Knob before, you’ll like the views on this hike a lot more. Also watch out for snakes on and around the rocks, saw a beautiful Copperhead catching some sun.

Visited after a few days of rain, and it was foggy/ muggy but still well worth the climb. If you're bringing a dog, though, definitely hike on leash. Went on a weekday and didn't see too many people, but heard 2 rattlesnakes hiding in the grass on the trail where it widens and saw a copperhead on the rocks at Pinnacle/ Pulpit rock.

HikingGreat!Rocky

[Ignore my recording, my phone died] Did a sunrise hike to the Pinnacle. Really amazing views especially at sunrise! First 1.5 miles is a steady incline of about 1000 or so ft but then you're smooth sailing to the viewpoint. Trail is well marked and relatively simple to navigate with headlamps in the dark. Definitely recommend.

It’s a good trail with a beautiful vantage point at the end. The trail is rather rocky, so make sure to wear stable shoes.
