Overview

The Knoll Trail is a 1.25-mile segment of the Escarpment Route that runs through open Mojave Desert Scrub along the base of the Wilson Cliffs. This segment runs beneath Rainbow Mountain and connects the Arnight and Oak Creek Canyon trails. The Knoll Trail also is part of the Rainbow Mountain Loop and runs just outside the Rainbow Mountain Wilderness Area. The Knoll Trail is fairly easy with little elevation gain, but it should not be considered a separate hike, rather just a portion of a longer hike because other trails are required to get to it.

Here, the Knoll Trail is described in pictures as starting from the Arnight Trail and running south along the base of Rainbow Mountain to the Oak Creek Canyon Trail. For a detailed description of the hike, see Knoll Trail Northbound.
