Blue Knob is best known for its downhill skiing in winter. It is, after all, home to the second- tallest mountain in the state, one that stands just 67 feet lower than Mount Davis in nearby Somerset County. But it’s also a great place to hike in warmer weather, especially if you like scenic views. There are 18 miles of hiking trails—not counting a 26-mile backpacking trail that passes through the park—ranging from easy, kid- friendly ones to others that will test your stamina. There’s some really good fishing to be had for stocked and wild trout as well. Mountain bikers also visit here, with three trails in particular—Crist Ridge, Rock ‘N’ Ridge, and Mountain View—open to expert bikers.
