Kelly’s Knob – Johns Creek Mt.
About 10 miles; Strenuous; 35 miles from the parking area at Orange Market.
The hike begins on the AT in Craig county and crosses over Rt 42. After passing over Sinking Creek on a long cedar log puncheon walkway, we climb steadily for about 3 miles to get warmed up! The trail passes the Laurel Creek Shelter on the way up to Kelly’s Knob with nice southern and western views. Continuing on we pass Big Pond, high mountain bog, before intersecting Johns Creek Mountain trail for our 3 mile descent to the parking area. This hike requires a 15 minute car shuttle. Expecting temperatures in the 40’s and low 50’s for Wednesday with sunshine!
