Trail Overview

Knob Ridge Road is a dead-end road covering roughly 8.5 miles while crossing through state and private property. It is a hard-packed, smooth, dirt road that will turn muddy when wet. It offers a beautiful, scenic, relaxing drive across the mountain ridge with occasional views of New Lancaster Valley below. At the intersection with Ridge Trail, roughly 7.5 miles from Red Ridge Road, the road changes drastically. A high-clearance vehicle will be required to go further due to basketball size rocks, washes, and ruts. If you choose to turn back now, there is plenty of room to turn several vehicles around at the Ridge Trail intersection and head back out. Pressing on, you will reach the end at a private property that is posted. There is a large cleared area with enough room for several vehicles to turn around or stop, throw out a blanket and have a nice picnic. During the winter, this road can also be traveled via snowmobile.
