Carson Range & Valley all in one

Knob Point (elevation: 6050 ft) along the eastern flanks of the Carson Range is a pleasant resting point and a great viewpoint for recreationalists who enjoy hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding on Clear Creek Trail southwest of Carson City, Nevada. At this pine-tree-surrounded point you will find some shade and can overlook the Carson Valley ranchland. Knob Point is seven miles away from the Clear Creek Trailhead along Jacks Valley Road. From the more-difficult-to-find trailhead near the Highway 50 exit onto Golf Club Drive, it takes only 3.5 miles—0.8 miles on the Old Clear Creek Road— to get to Knob Point, which is located about one mile south of another grand view point, overlooking Clear Creek Valley.
