OK views but tough climb!
out de 2021
Tough hike for me--the rocks were not smooth and only parts had guardrails to hang on to. I think I should have paid attention to the people who stopped at the pedestrian overlook which was only .2 miles. The views were good but the ones from the parking lot and overlooks were even better so don't feel bad skipping this if you're running short on time.

Nice views on both sides!
set de 2021
This was a good place to take a break, go to the visitor center and also see the various mountains on both sides - Clingman's Dome (Smokies) and Mt. Pisgah and Mitchell. It was a clear day.

Views Are Great - At The Summit and Parking Lot
ago de 2021
This location offers great views and adventure from both the parking lot, where the restrooms and visitors center are located, and from the trail summit going up the mountain. The elevation at the parking lot is over 5800 feet, resulting in stunning, amazing long range views. You do not need to climb to the summit to experience these amazing views. The hike up to the summit is absolutely NOT EASY, requiring some tricky maneuvering around stumps and large, slick rocks. I recommend people who are not used to mountain hiking or not in exceptional physical shape NOT attempt the climb to the summit. If you do make that climb, you will be treated to some of the best vistas anywhere, period. Note that there are several picnic tables around the parking lot, as well as nice, clean restrooms. The visitors center is really nice, offering many diverse souvenirs of the area. Enjoy!

Beautiful view from parking area
ago de 2021 • Família
We were there in the late afternoon so the sun was against photos from one side where we were supposed to see several states. The other direction the view was beautiful. Nice restrooms and picnic tables, we wished we’d have known. There is a path to “the summit” which we only walked about a half mile uphill and could not see anything through the trees. It was very hot and no places to rest along the way, so we came back. It would be pretty at sunset.

Steep but easy hike up to mountain top. Lovely views. Optional hike to plane crash is worth it but definitely hard. My husband and I are in decent shape but we had a rough time on the way back. Hiking shoes a must.

Fabulous views
jul de 2021
A short ride from Maggie Valley on the Blue Ridge Parkway has wonderful overlooks, breathtaking views. The Knob has a visitors center, with a short but steep walk to the top. The views are well worth it.

Great stop on the BRP
jun de 2021 • Casais
Beautiful scenery at the Visitor Center, nearly 360 degree view. A few picnic tables. Very popular at sunset, but so pretty. Arrived nearly an hour before and it was crowded already! Climb to the top is .5 miles but fairly rigorous. Loved it though! We did the climb after a picnic lunch and came back for sunset.

Hike to a Mountain Top: Waterrock Knob
mai de 2021
Hiking to the top of Waterrock Knob is EXCITING and SCENIC. For those not up to this .5 mile hike to the top the views from the Parking Lot and Visitors Center are still terrific. The hike is two sections .2 miles is Pedestrian Hike on paved pathway to stone wall overlook. Then the hike ascends fairly steeply up the mountain the next .3 miles.
In .5 miles the trail climbs 400 ft. so that is 80 ft. per tenth of a mile. The trail is well marked, is sometimes a dirt path, but mainly a rocky path (almost forming steps). Some areas have stairs built to go around steep or dangerous areas. The views from the top are spectacular. We went on a Monday in May and there was little traffic. The entire time we were at the top and ate our picnic lunch it was just the two of us. So peaceful and beautiful.
Be sure to take water, sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and snacks. There are no places to get food or drinks on the Parkway.

Spectacular 360 degree View
abr de 2021
If you like the hike, you can go up top, but you won’t need to! Great for an accessible stop, which was true for my husband.

Strenuous uphill but worth it
nov de 2020 • Casais
Don’t take this half mile hike lightly. Hubby and I work out daily but we were still breathing hard on the way up as it is straight uphill. Worth the view though and then downhill all the way back.
