This knob is on a farm on Lucas Lash Road in Belmont County, OH. The owner would like to warn potential hikers to please not climb the fence or enter through the paddock into the field where Galloway Knob is located. This is an active cattle farm. There are bulls and protective cows with calves that could charge and injure people. There are “No Trespassing” signs posted. However, the owner welcomes you to stop at his beautiful farmhouse, located a bit further west along Lucas Lash Road on the south side. He will greet you and safely escort or direct you to the knob. The family is very proud of the knob and wishes you to see it, but safely!
