Blackbird Knob – View to West

We did a wonderful day hike out and back on the Blackbird Knob Trail, starting at the Red Creek Campground (see on Google map and see trail map below).

We looked for and did not find an obvious trail to the top of Blackbird Knob. So we followed the trail which rounded the hill on the south, and awhen SW of the peak headed uphill, off the trail, into this beautiful field for a break to soak in the view. I think that from there we could have wound our way to the summit, or whatever is at the top of the hill. Next time…

Duration: 3-4 m roundtrip – easy 2-3 hours

Difficulty **

Remarkability **** Wide open views of Dolly Sods to west

Kid friendly ****

Here’s a trail map to help in planning a hike (I think you need a better map to take on a hike – which you can get in Davis at outfitter store.)  Map courtesy of
