Great views of Knob Mountain, spring/source for Jeremys Run. This hike uses the Knob Mtn Trail and the Elkwallow Trail to make a pleasing circuit between Mathews Arm Campground and Elkwallow Wayside. The Wayside has a cafeteria, snack bar, camp store, and gift shop, and is open from mid-April to the end of October.

Very nice hike, well marked trails. Trail head is couple hundred yards beyond the yellow chain across access road. Trail Head mark with sign.
