New Market Gap sits at about 1,800 feet (about 550 meters), dividing Virginia's Massanutten range and connecting New Market (Shenandoah County) with Luray (Page County) via US 211. Bird Knob lies just a few miles south of New Market Gap, whereas the popular hiking destinations Strickler Knob and Duncan Knob can be found north of the gap.
After an initial steep section, a hike to Bird Knob offers a pleasant ridge walk with some westward views from rock outcrops, and then a short but fun bushwhack/scramble to the summit. There is also the option to visit a nearby spring-fed pond/swimming hole, if desired.
