McAfee Knob

This past Saturday we hiked a total of 8 miles to one of the most popular views in Virginia. McAfees Knob is located in Catawba, Virginia and is part of the Appalachian Trail that goes from Maine to Georgia -- so obviously this was a very small part of it. We were beat afterwards but the view was spectacular!!


The hike wasn't really strenuous -- just a gradual incline up. There were a few points in the hike that were difficult but thankfully it didn't last long.


The view at the top:

It took a total of 4 hours and this included a 30 minute stop at the top. Everyone at the top was having a picnic lunch and packing one is a very good idea. You work up an appetite!
