Pole Knoll is a short, dirt road connector between Highway 260 and Highway 273, that leads to several other roads all within the heart of the White Mountains. Road quality is very good, with only a few areas that are a bit rocky or present washboards for short periods. The road is generally straight, with a few easy curves and climbs. Along the drive, you will be rewarded with an expansive view over a broad meadow and up to the Sunrise Park Resort ski area. Keep your eyes open for cattle, horses, elk, mule deer, pronghorn, or cowboys in the meadow. Isolated patches of snow may be visible on the nearby mountains well into early summer. Midway along the trail, Sunrise Lake and White Mountain Reservoir come into view. Water levels of these drastically change from season to season and from year to year. Spread along the full length of the trail, there are at least five dispersed camping areas, many well away from the road but with wonderful views.
