Once considered for the location of a ski slope, the point known as Bald Knob sits at one of the highest elevations in Rothrock State Forest at 2304 ft. One way to get to the top is from Laurel Run Rd. where you can begin on the Lower Trail and connect to the Green Shoot Trail. The ascent includes comfortable switchbacks meandering through fern-covered forest prior to the final climb to the ridgeline. Take a map with you, as you may want to explore Clemons, Sand Spring, or Lower Trail before heading back to your starting point!
