Loved this old observation tower. Great views and an easy climb to get there. This definitely felt like a locals only destination, not really publicized for tourists. I highly recommend this stop to anyone in the area.

The view is amazing from Bickel Knob, it is not too high either, if you want breath taking views I recommend going to this tower!

Only about 4 mile drive to top---then very short walk to tower----some have issues because the stairs are see thru metal--but it really wasn't bad--and worth the view

Social distancing for the day and getting away from all the craziness in the world, I ended up at Bickles Knob. Even though I have lived in Randolph county all my life I had never climbed to the top. Beautiful views and peaceful natural surroundings. It was just what I needed. A brief escape from reality and stresses of the modern world.

On our way to Elkins, found this Observation Tower listed with Tripadvisor. Using the directions on the Forestry website, found the location. There is a four mile drive up to the tower, but be patient. The tower itself was built by the CCC, but the house at the top has been removed. Four stories tall, not for the faint hearted. My wife only made it up to the third story. But the views up top were wonderful. 360 degree view. It was a clear day and literally could see almost forever. But remember, no facilities.
