The knob at the intersection of Rocky Way Trail and Crossover Trail Overlooking Roanoke Valley & Stewart's Knob South is one of my favorite view on the trail.

Fullhardt Knob Via Appalachian Trail starts with an almost 360 degree view of a beautiful valley then on a medium-difficulty hike through the woods to Fullhardt Knob Shelter

Fullhardt Knob is a lesser-used portion of the Appalachian Trail and therefore makes it a perfect candidate for a quiet walking trail near Roanoke.
