About This Activity

The Knob-- 2 miles of pure hill! The race begins at the Watauga County Library in downtown historic Boone. Out of the parking lot you'll begin the Knob ascent with a left turn onto Queen St. which becomes Grand Blvd. Taking a right onto Bear Trail, the route will then take a left onto Eastwood/Junaluska Road. Finally, after a major climb and with the peak in-sight, the route takes a right onto Howard's Knob Road and finishes in Howard's Knob Park. The route reaches an elevation of 4,406 feet (1,343 m) above sea level, and climbs nearly 1,000 feet (300 m) above the town of Boone and the campus of Appalachian State University. The course is surrounded with fall foliage and unparalleled views from the top.

Plan on plenty of merriment during this race as it is an offical ASU Homecoming event and the last race in the Triple Crown series. Particpants who finish all three races of The High Country Triple Crown will be recognized following The Knob!
