Hike: Signal Knob / Massanutten Mountains, VA
There’s a reason we schedule at least one hike a year to Signal Knob: the awesome view from its rocky promontory, site of a Civil War signal tower.

About the Event
$26. Long hike: 10½ mi., 2200 ft. ascent/descent. Medium hike: 8½ mi., 2100 ft. ascent/descent, and a short hike option.
Today’s visit there features two counter-clockwise circuits from scenic Elizabeth Furnace in George Washington National Forest. We’ll ascend the Signal Knob Trail (good views en route) to the ridgetop, where medium hikers veer off on Meneka Trail along the ridge and descend to the bus on the Tuscarora and Massanutten Trails. Long hikers continue to the Signal Knob overlook, turn onto the Tuscarora Trail and follow the medium hikers back. Short hike is an out-and-back option of any distance.
