When simply “seeing” a destination just won’t do.
Feature Adventure: The A.T. at Your Door
The Roanoke region is home to one of the most photographed sights along the Appalachian Trail: the cliff at McAfee Knob. Take the four-mile trail of the same name (with a trailhead roughly 20 minutes from Roanoke) to reach the dramatic rocky overhang – roughly 3,171 feet in elevation – that overlooks the most phenomenal 270-degree views of the Catawba Valley to the west, the Tinker Cliffs to the north, and the Roanoke Valley to the east. While the sight was featured in the 2015 film A Walk in the Woods (in fact, it’s right on the movie poster), the whole hike is packed with highlights: wooden bridges, rippling creeks, and giant boulders.
