Knob Hill is the tall hill that you first encounter on the north side of the powerline road. It has two main formations, the south-facing cliff up high and Pitbull Tower, a short tower just down and right (east) of the main cliff. Many minor formations and boulders abound on the rest of the hillsides. One of the best camping spots is on the backside of this hill at a small outcrop called the Backside.

Getting There
