($5/car). Tamasee Knob Trail (4.1 out and back, 751’ elevation). The name “Tamassee” means “Place of the Sunlight of God”, according to an interpretation of the Cherokee word which gave the area its original title. I think that’s the perfect name for this hike. A beautiful walk through the woods along undulating hills, up on to a ridge, ending at a rock outcropping with big views. We had the entire hike to ourselves.
