Knob knob?

Who’s there?!


Elliott who?

JUST KIDDING it’s Cam and Chelsea, and we want you to come backpacking with us this weekend!!!

We’ll be hiking up Elliott knob, which is a steep four mile trip to a beautiful grassy summit. On the hike up we’ll pass two waterfalls, and at the top there’s a cool and fancy lookout tower where we can get some amazing views.

The hike is 4 miles with 2500 ft of vertical gain, so we recommend everyone to be fairly comfortable with physically demanding hikes (both of us will definitely be winded, so don’t worry too much). For dinner we’ll provide some grub (pasta) but please feel free to bring your own food,, + bring your own breakfast (bagels, power bars, etc.).

Here’s the alltrails in case you’re interested: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/virginia/elliott-knob-trail

We’ll meet at echols dorm at 3:30 pm, get everything loaded up and drive an hour to Craigsville VA to begin our trip up Elliott knob. Once we’ve reached the summit we can enjoy the sunset, tell some stories, and eat a fantastic meal. We’ll wake up around sunrise (7 am), eat breakfast, and head on out. We should be back in the ville around 1!
