Lil’ Butt Knob Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Lil’ Butt Knob hike is one of four loop trails that utilize a portion of the Pine Mountain Trail in Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park. The Lil’ Butt Knob route is suitable for either day or overnight hiking, with three designated campsites along the route at Beech Bottom, Big Knot, and Grindstone Campsites.

This trail description starts near mile 11 on the Pine Mountain Trail, where it crosses Route 190 and follows the blue blazes in a counterclockwise direction just west of Hines Gap. Heading northwest, hike around the eastern side of a small knob at 1343 feet, then make a gradual 200-foot descent to Big Poplar Creek, a possible water source. Here the trail makes a series of hairpin turns around the stream before gaining elevation again to cross a small ridge. The ridge separates the Big Poplar and Beech Branch drainages."
