For a different local trail with a nice view check out Bald Knob in Rocky Mount. A very short public hike beginning at the Franklin County High School track leads up Bald Knob for a 360 degree view. Rocky Mount, Smith Mountain and the Peaks of Otter are among the sights you will see. Stan and Janice King of SW county helped us discover this trail recently.
