The hike is located in Botetourt County.This up-and-back Appalachian Trail hike begins at a small parking lot on Route 11 at the Troutville town limits. After crossing railroad tracks, hikers ascend a grassy hill with excellent views. The trail then crosses a road and begins the climb to Fullhardt Knob. Shortly before the summit and shelter are reached, a side trail leads to a viewpoint.
