Jones Knob is a short hike just off the Bartram trail that takes you to a mountaintop view. To get to Jones Knob follow Highway 64 West toward Franklin for 4.6 miles. Just beyond the entrance for Cliffside Lake, turn left onto Turtle Pond Road. Then, go 1.1 miles to an intersection and continue right onto Dendy Orchard Road (SR1678) for 1.4 miles which will turn into a steep dirt road. When you reach the top of the hill, turn left on Jones Gap Road. The Bartram Trail sign will indicate this road. Continue for 2 miles to the parking area at the top of the gap. Park here. An old roadbed leads to the right to a wildlife management field. At the far end of the field to the right, yellow blazes will mark the Bartram Trail. To the left blue blazes mark the Jones Knob Spur Trail. Follow the blue blazed trail for .3 miles to Jones Knob.
