Awesome hike. We did Big Schloss first, walked back to the car and refilled water, then camped at Tibbett Knob. Don't let the short mileage fool you, you will feel the elevation gain on this one. The scrambling at the end is pretty minor. It's got a few awesome backcountry campsites and tons of side trails leading to private viewpoints of the overlook. The overlook is an excellent place for star gazing and photography! Bring your own water.

Two amazing views, a mostly uphill experience.. Spent 8 hours on the whole trail including time for pictures.

Paired this with Big Schloss for a 5 star rating. Just over 8 miles and over 2000 feet. Tibbet Knob has more solitude but the views on Big Schloss are better. Start with Tibbet and move to Big Schloss for the better payoff. Views are north and westerly for planning photos.

Combined Tibbet Knob Trail with Big Schloss Trail for a 7.5 mile hike with 2000 ft elev. gain. A good workout. Highly recommended.

Wear good shoes. Not suitable for children. I fell about 8 Times. Some areas are strictly rock. Beautiful summit go up further than the trail says.

Had this trail mostly to ourselves. The overlook is one of the best views I've come across so far, absolutely beautiful.

Nice trail - it's long but a lot of it's pretty flat. I did it as an overnight. There are plenty of well maintained campsites along the way. I'm not a big fan of ending a hike with a 3-4 mile stretch down a road so if I were to do this again I'd park at the head of the yellow trail (Stoney Creek) and head back to the little schloss (purple) trailhead. That way you do the big stretch of gravel road at the start.

Hiked it with my dog. The rock scramble near the top was fun and well worth the view.

Views: 4/5. Rocky outcropping at the top gives a beautiful view of the bowl to the South. There were a surprising number of flies and hornets at the top, but other than that was quite nice.
Solitude: 5/5. Saw two other hikers on the trail on a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning.
Difficulty: Medium. Steep at times. Rock scrambles were short and moderately challenging.

Great for a solo hike because it isn't as popular as its sister hike, Big Schloss. I went in March and didn't see a soul. 2 beautiful overlooks. 2 small rock scrambles. I wouldn't consider it a hard hike. perhaps hard for a dog or small children.

We had a great time hiking this trail. The first mile was a bit tough with a 1 year old in a pack. It was all worth it once we reached the top.

This was fun and fairly easy. My six year old got a little tired on the way up but the nice flat portions and views made up for it.

Fun little hike; stopped off with the boyfriend and dog on our way to a cabin. The trail is rocky, which we liked. There are three rock outcroppings with a nice view at the top. Best part was we didn't encounter a single soul on this trail, even though the parking lot it shares with Big Shloss was packed!

Great afternoon hike, perfect for kids and dogs. Creek runs alongside the trail (which is a washed out road really). Very rocky, and full of thorny bushes so dress appropriately.

Do not recommend this for kids, it is very very steep and there are sections of the trail that are complete rock/narrow paths on the edge of the slopes. Not very scenic but overall is a good challenging hike, I brought my dog he did just fine.

Great hike. Would not suggest for families. The rock scramble at the end can be a bit tricky. The views are well worth the effort!!!

I've been going on this hike ever since I was a kid! The first half is an easy trail leading to a beautiful rocky half-way point. The final ~30 minutes of the hike is very steep. Finally, you'll reach a campsite area and an opportunity to climb over a large boulder to see a fantastic view of the valley. Always fun, and there and back in just a few hours.

This trail definitely lived up to its rating of "difficult" but is a great hike. The views from the top are exactly what you would expect from the valley. Glad I brought my stick. There's a nice spot at the top for camping for those who are inclined to backpacking.

A lot of the trail seemed entirely unkempt, as if it was no longer trail. It was still great and connected me to the end of my triple crown loop though!

The first mile is a bit steep, but it levels out after that and offers some amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The vistas are well worth the climb!

A lot of fallen trees to climb over. Very rocky, trail was not very well defined.

A very nice, easy trail. I hoped that the entrance to the trail would have been marked better, however, if you follow the handy coordinates on "All Trails" you will find it quite easily. The trail seems to be an old creek bed which makes for a gradual incline through the mountains. When traveling from the east, the drive across the mountain will provide several photo worthy views of the valley.

Well marked trail and gorgeous views. Slightly more difficult than Big Schloss due to steep terrain and rocky path but still a short and relatively easy hike.
