Rocky Knob is an 185-acre mountain biking park in Boone, NC. Currently, there are around 11 miles of looping trails including work stations, dedicated skills areas, and a state-of-the-art paved pump track. Plus the park has three shelters, an adventure playground, and picnic areas. 


The History:

In 2010, 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. Additional funding has come from Bikes Belong Foundation, Clif Bar, NC Adopt a Trail, 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.
