McAfee's Knob is quoted as "the most photographed spot on the AT," and according to my dear friend Anna, it is a must see if you plan on visiting southern Virginia. I happen to agree. McAfee's Knob, the Dragons Tooth, and the Tinker Cliffs are all within a days hike on one another, and they are some of the most beautiful features I have seen in Virginia. It would be a shame to miss them, and as a thru-hiker, if you didn't do McAfee you'd be shunned, I'm sure. But, do I really want to climb out on this thing?
