Gobbler's Knob provides an escape from the city to enjoy the solitude and wonderful views surrounding the Upper Lytle Creek Divide. The trail is most notable for its connection to the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), which intersects at both ends and provides camping sites and resupply for hikers taking the long PCT journey. A large parking area at the end provides a place to take short hikes along the PCT or even out to Gobbler's Knob. Gobbler's Knob is actually the highest prominence of the Upper Lytle Creek Divide with an elevation of 6955 feet and is located a short 1/4 mile hike west of the parking area. The term "knob" is an archaic word for a prominent geographical landmark by which travelers may guide themselves. Forest Service Administrators have stated that the "gobbler" of Gobbler's Knob refers to the wild turkeys that once roamed the area. When camping is allowed, you will likely find tired travelers camped in the flat area past the iron fence marking the boundary to PCT. Pets can also enjoy the trail also when kept on a leash.
