“The bottom section of a flow trail that descends from the Buffalo Fire Tower to Knuckles Creek.”— David Blaisus
The west side of the Knucklehead trail is superb machine built flow trail winding down to Knuckles Creek. The trail continues downstream along Knuckles Creek eventually crossing and (Eastern section) climbing slowly up to the Kapark Road Trail - FR 1410 on an old doubletrack.
A loop back to the Fire Tower can be completed by turning left on FR 1410 and following it to Cave Mountain Road - turn left again to return to the Knuckles Creek Trailhead or the Fire Tower Loop Trail.
The Knucklehead Trail connects to the Fire Tower Trail and (if exited heading down Knuckles Creek by turning left at Signpost 26), to the Azalea Falls Trail.
