High Knob Dark Site

High Knob Dark Site

High Knob Overlook, located in the Loyalsock State Forest at almost 2,000ft elevation,  offers gorgeous panoramic views of the Endless Mountains region of Pennsylvania. It’s a special place to watch a spectacular sunset slowly fade into inky black skies.

A truly dark sky, studded with thousands of stars, it offers a unique opportunity to enjoy serious deep sky observing. Because of its elevation and paved parking area, it offers a clean and typically dew free area from which to observe. Although the roads to the overlook are smooth blacktop roads, they are so remote they do not receive winter maintenance, so it is wise to check before heading there in the winter.
