4.2 mile loop to the top of Moore's Knob with 360 degree veiws from the top, including the nearby Hanging Rock (namesake of the park), and Sauratown Mountain and Pilot Mountain in the distance. The loop starts by the lake/campground . It joins up with several other trails including Tory's Den and a nature trail. There are 2 options that meet at the summit. the 1.6 m option w/ lots of stair steps is wide and more traveled. The 2.6 m option is more single track trail with lots of rocks.

This is a very nice trail that wasn't heavily trafficked the day we did it in late-January on a 45°F day. A very nice workout for a Sunday afternoon!

great hike clockwise on the loop! a longer ascent but it's well worth it. a more natural single track with beautiful rock formations. the view at the top shows the mountain outline to the west and far views in he piedmont to the east. we plan on ascending and descending the longer part of the loop next time to avoid manmade rock stairs. will only add about .8 miles to trip.

Difficult, but well worth the view. My favorite in Hanging Rock. The tower is beautiful.
