BRO’s Weekend Pick North–Hike to McAfee Knob

Brave the cold this weekend and hike to one of the most photographed spots on the Appalachian Trail. McAfee Knob, a unique rock outcropping near Roanoke, Va., offers astounding views of the Catawba Valley, North Mountain, Tinker Ridge, and on clear days, even the Roanoke Valley. The easiest access is a 3.5-mile A.T. jaunt that climbs from VA 311. On the way up, check out Devil’s Kitchen for some bouldering opportunities. At the top, posed photos on the knob is a fun tradition. McAfee Knob is most popular in the fall when the leaves are changing, but a winter hike offers unparalleled views as well. Give it a shot this weekend, and share your experience with us in Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #myblueridge!
