If you are looking for a restaurant you need to go to the Breaks which is about 70 miles from High Knob. If you are looking for beauty, quiet, a place to camp or a place to cook out then High Knob is your place....More

Gorgeous 360 degree view from the top of the observation tower. Gently sloping paved path up to it; no stairs required. Beautiful wild flowers along the paths. Decent parking area. A quick stop on the same road up to Flag Rock Recreation Area.

I had never been here before, but WILL be back again to explore even more of the place. The trails were well marked and everything was well maintained.

Words can't describe the recreational opportunities that abound in this area. It is nature at its best! Proud of the work the US Forest Service is doing with this natural resource area. Great job!

The views are breathtaking. We also liked to look over and see Norton Va from Flag Rock. The reservoir are really neat to see also. The family hikes are great and have great look out points.

High Knob is a less visited National Forest with great opportunities to hike, picnic and camp. From High Knob Tower on a clear day you can see three different states.
