      Rocky Knob is an 185 acre park in Boone, NC. The park was created in 2009 when two $5,000 grants were secured from the Bikes Belong Foundation and Specialized Bicycles. These grants were made possible through the WCTDA’s partnership with Boone Area Cyclists, a local nonprofit organization working to promote and develop cycling opportunities throughout the Boone area. Watauga County, in partnership with the Watauga County Tourism Development Authority (WCTDA), received a $500,000 grant from the North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) to assist with the acquisition and development for Rocky Knob Park. Three professional trail building companies worked with BAC volunteers to create about 8 miles of mountain bike trails for all skill levels (and accessible to hikers and trail runners), 4 skills areas, and a pump track. The park also includes a picnic shelter, bathrooms, and an adventure playground and is located just east of the city limit on US 421.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Access Info:
