Brandy BelvilleOct. 18 Report - Elk Knob State Park

Oct. 18, 2013, Looking East from Meat Camp Road at the foot of Elk Knob.

A private plane pilot stopped by the Elk Knob Office yesterday. He said that by far, the area surrounding Elk Knob has the prettiest color. Since visitors rarely fly their own planes, the best view of the surrounding area is at the top of Elk Knob’s Summit Trail. This weekend’s weather may shake down the leaves on the Knob, but the view from the top should last a while longer.

For more information about visiting this location, go to North Carolina State Parks and Explore Boone Area.
