Great hike with awesome vistas and interesting geology. Photos don't come close to representing Knobby Rock or the ancient forest. The trail system is about 5 miles total. There are 2 loop trails (Knobby Rock & Sand Cave) and one out and back (Watts Creek). l would recommend doing all of them. When you get to the fork to go to the Sand Cave from the Knobby Rock trail, take the Sand Cave trail. It loops back around to the Knobby Rock trail about 40 feet from the initial fork. If you take this route you will not only see the Sand Cave but you'll also go through an area known as the Maze - a rock scramble beneath a rockhouse. We went on a Saturday afternoon and only saw 1 other person on the trail. Very peaceful and a great opportunity to see wildlife and many plant species.
