Waterrock Knob

Waterrock Knob, the crest and the view …

Located a short nine miles south of the inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Waterrock Knob is the highest peak in the Plott Balsam mountain range. Popular for the dramatic views from its parking lot – it’s a great, driveable place to see sunsets and shooting stars – Waterrock Knob also offers a nice hike. It’s a moderately difficult 2.4 mile round trip to an elevation of 6,292 ft.
