Duncan Knob Hike

A 12 mile circuit hike to Duncan Knob with 2200' elevation gain. This hike takes place in the Massanutten mountains in George Washington National Forest.

Starting from Camp Roosevelt we will form a circuit with the Massanutten Trail, Scothorn Gap Trail and Gap Creek Trail. There is a significant rock scramble to Duncan Knob. The rocky Duncan Knob will be our lunch stop with a beautiful 270 degree view. This is one you don't want to miss.

You must be experienced in hikes of this distance and elevation gain.

    I hope the mud is better than the last time I was there...it was over 1 foot deep. Remember there is always Kennedy's Peak close by.
