“Beautiful Views”
Review of Waterrock Knob

The views before the hike to the top are fabulous, but they are breathtaking once you reach the top. I mean that both literally and figuratively. It is a half mile hike and we had to stop to catch our breath a couple of times. Well worth it though when you get to the top!

If you just drive up to the parking lot you will be greeted with a great view in all directions. Walk up the 0.2 mile paved trail to the viewing area and get an even better vista. However, if you comtinue up the steep, unpaved 0.3 mile trail, you will be rewarded with the most spectacular views on the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. Only attempt this if you are in decent physical shape.
The parking lot is a great place to watch a sunset or sunrise. Also great for picnics. Extra bonus is that this area includes one of the very few rest room facilities on this section of the Parkway'
