The Dowdell Knob Loop is a 4.4-mile microcosm of what the loop hikes along the PMT have to offer. Besides being one of the most scenic, it also passes through a couple of the historic locations on Pine Mountain. The Dowdell Knob Loop combines the short parking-lot approach trail, a 3.0-mile section of the PMT, and 1.3 miles of the Boot Top Trail. The last trail earns its name from its placement on the loop. The PMT portion of the path creates the outline of a boot, with Dowdell Knob overlook at its southern heel. The Boot Top Trail cuts across the other end, or top of the boot.
