High Knob Lookout

  

Once the site of a fire lookout tower, high knob was staffed by the Camp Cadiz Civilian Conservation Corpsmen (CCC) during the early days of the Shawnee National Forest.  The old tower's concrete footings still remain. A picnic area provides daytime parking and trailhead for the 5-miles of interconnecting trails below the Knob. Forty foot cliffs, clear creeks and deciduous forest are just a few of the features along the path.
