13 Days: Kelly’s Knob Hike
Today we took all 4 dogs hiking on the Appalachian Trial to an outlook called “Kelly’s Knob”. Located on the border of Giles and Craig counties in Southwest Virginia, about 30 minutes from Virginia Tech, this trial was about 4.4 miles out and back from the car to the lookout. We had never done this hike before and are glad that we did it before we graduated! It took us about 3.5-hours roundtrip, although we stopped to take many pictures and stayed at the outlook for a while. This was a moderately difficult hike (the first mile of this trail is a steep, rocky climb) with a beautiful outlook at the end, known as Kelly’s Knob. The views from the outlook are beautiful – Virginia Tech can be seen from one angle and the Blue Ridge valleys and mountains from another. Here are some pictures from our active, fun Saturday!
