Elk Knob State Park is one of the newest additions to the North Carolina State Parks System. Currently, it is in an interim development stage with a park office/contact station, a maintenance facility, picnic area, parking areas, a trail to the summit of Elk Knob, and backcountry camping areas. At this time, visitors can hike to the summit by following a newly constructed trail 1.9 miles to the summit.
