I really enjoyed this trail last year when I checked it out for the first time. Like that time we are starting at the bottom parking area at Ellis and Broadway, by the tennis courts. Not where the trail description says. We'll hike up to the top lookout then catch onto the loop before heading back down to our vehicles and a well-earned dinner.

Trail Description

If you're sick of the regular Apex or Paul's Tomb trails up Knox, try this unique custom-tailored trail. You'll hit several unique view points unfamiliar to tourists (and even many locals), including the famous Knox summit above Kathleen lake. Due to the number of forks this trail takes, a GPS-enabled device with the map are required if not coming with our group.

  • Anybody going by downtown so I can hitch a ride. Was going to just bike over but don't like the idea of locking my bike up at the bottom of the mtn. for so longwith all the theft going on.

  • Hey Jen, I actually live downtown at Bernard and Gordon. It's just a short bike over but just don't feel safe locking my bike there for a long time.
