Bill Knight Gap Road, named for the switchbacking section that climbs a cliff, traverses pine forests and wide open meadows. The trail begins in the town of Luna and travels north to Highway 60. Cattle graze the meadows, and the trail does pass through a ranch on a small section of private land. There are scenic white cliffs that border the route. In the north, the incongruity of old abandoned ranch buildings with modern wind turbines on the hills above them is striking. The road is well maintained, though traveled lightly enough that grass grows in the middle of the trail in places. There are a few dispersed campsites scattered along the trail.
