“Yes, go!!! Great views and short walk. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

We were in the area after coming back from ferry. So glad we found this (thank you, Tripadvisor!). The directions that opened in google maps from trip advisor were wrong, though. We parked and saw nothing. You need to go until the road ends. We were lucky to find one spot open of the 10 or so.
Short walk through greenery. Open path, though. Maybe 5+ min walk to end. The views of the water are awesome. Wish we would have packed a snack so we could sit and enjoy view.

“Nice short walk to views.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

This site can be found by driving down Oyster Pond Road all the way to the end. There is parking on the right side with the harbor on the left. The entrance to the knob is between the harbor and a private driveway. After walking a short distance there's an information kiosk showing different trails.

Parking can be a premium, so you may want to grab the first spot you see when you get to the harbor.

Watch out for poison ivy along the way.

Gorgeous hidden gem. Lovely short walk to the knob. Perfect at sunset for some soul searching & taking great photographs.
