This is one of the few isolated knobs in the area that is not named on the USGS map and is not part of Pyle Mountain or or Buckley Mountain to the north but rises up above Chicken House Run and other nearby creeks 300 to 500 feet. It is in the Monongahela National Forest land and has numerous good trails to the summit (off the Allegheny Trail) although the summit is unmarked, off trail, and was estimated by GPS.

It is lower than Watoga Knob, best can tell, but Watoga is thus, the NNN and the saddle between them is around elevation 2900 +/- on the trail saddle just south of Chicken House Run Road.
