Ascent Trip Report

Oddly there is a sign at the saddle between peaks that announces Knapps Knob with a number in the 1800s and I think it is FS trail number although the trail does not actually connect to the main trail you see only a faint grassy path until you get past the forest sign and then a steep path up the Knob is obvious. I estimated the total gain to be 155 feet and that almost perfectly matches the prominence in the database. This is pretty much an anticlimactic little peak but hey......if out peakbagging you got to tag them all so.........
