dogs on leash
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.
Incredible views! Worth the climb!!!
Amazing. I can't wait to go back.
best trail to see the sunset at this park
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!
Had an amazing day hiking this trail!
Fantastic hike. Well marked trail with 360° views.
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.
Amazing that's all I have to say !!!!! All the steps on the short side can get to you but simply beautiful on top
kind of tough but when you get to the top you're on top of the world take your camera
Difficult, but well worth the view. My favorite in Hanging Rock. The tower is beautiful.
view is spectacular
