A short hike to the summit of Huckleberry Knob featuring 360 degree views. This easy trail is about 2.5 miles round-trip. Just follow the trail, actually an old road, through the open woods to the Oak Knob. Then stay on the road to Huckleberry Knob.

This was absolutely stunning. Panoramic views and a pretty easy trail; kids would especially enjoy this because of the varying views and balds. Take a blanket and have a picnic in the mountains. :)

Huckleberry Knob trail was an easy hike with our 3 year old. The trail was easy to follow and not too steep. The weeds were a bit high in some parts. The view at the top was worth the weeds, nevertheless. The grassy knoll at the top is perfect for a picnic lunch.

Good walk but weeds could be cut back some.
Worth the time and energy for the 360 view at the top.

Nice easy hike with incredible 360 degree view. We were fortunate to have perfect weather as well.

One of the few true 360º views around. Sat last week on Hooper Bald looking across at the top and said to ourselves, "That's where we want to be." So this week we decided to go. It is an easy walk with the added bonus of Oak Knob. We could see endless blue ridges, watch the sky, enjoy the sun, feel the soft grass--just a delight. Looking forward to returning many times in the days to come.

Lovely trail. Went when it was foggy so views were obscured but the foggy fields and forests were absolutely beautiful as well. Easy and quiet hike. Gets a little windy in the open places.

I've done this trail twice now and it was awesome. We went in the summer and wish we had come earlier in the spring due to the amount of wild flowers along the trail. Butterflies and bumblebees are everywhere so take your camera. Great views from the top with an elevation of over a mile high.
