Trail Overview

Potato Knob is an easy gravel road with steep hill climbs and rolling hills. Beautiful scenic views that go on for miles. You can find an old homestead along this trail that leaves you to wonder why a house would have been in the middle of nowhere. A root cellar still stands on this homestead and is in amazing shape. It's evident that this house has been gone a while with the two tall trees that come out from the middle of the foundation. You will also find campsites with views as well, however, they are dispersed with no running water. Cell service is attainable along this route.
