Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2015


Not much to say about Bluebell Knoll, but the views from Government Point, Fish Creek Point, and Donkey Point were spectacular. We got to the latter two from on top of the plateau, but reached Government Point by scrambling up the west side. If you have to pick one of the 3, go to Government Point.

Beautiful area. I really enjoyed the drive up to where one parks for this county highpoint. I did Mount Ellen earlier in the day and decided to drive up to this one on the way back to SLC.

abrennalinerushTo say this one took ten minutes might be a bit of an overestimate.  Sucess!

But! It was plenty worth the drive, even if I seemed underwhelmed. Pinky promise. I swoon so hard for senesced foliage. That's a thing.

Did this one after Mt Ellen. The leaves were changing and there were two rainbows. Anyway, well worth the drive.

apachedinoEscape from Bluebell Knoll  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2012


The drive from Loa was simple enough and the short hike was nice. Saw a large irridescent blue spider near the summit. Endemic to only this knoll? We decided why not drive down to Escalante and see Hells backbone. The road is NOT Subaru approved in that direction. Heinously rocky. I ended up having to build 2 rock ramps to escape and tore a skid plate out of my car before making it to a lake off the plateau near the swale. I would like to go up here in the winter and skin the perimeter of the plateau.

Did this one in sandles after doing Fish Lake Hightop earlier in the day. Also I believe it's my car's highest point so far.

Climbed this in a rainstorm. Luckily it's only a couple of minutes from the car. Then drove for two hours trying to find a road down to Torrey that showed up on two of my maps. Finally, drove back down to Bicknell.

Now that I've climbed the dreaded Bluebell Knoll I can finally rest, thoughts of this summit had been haunting me or years, Did I have it in me? What if it took me over five minutes?

#1 8-27-09. Two minutes to walk up to the top from the sign. The sign is beginning to show signs of weathering. I was surprised to see all of the trees up there at that elevation. #2. 11-01-14. "Talk of your cold, through the parka's fold, it stabbed like a driven nail." (Robert Service)

Made it to Bluebell Knoll early in the evening. The summit had a cairn and was easy to spot. The temperature was actually pretty cool up on the plateau. Ran into the same family I had met on Mount Ellen earlier in the day.

Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2009


A long drive from Loa, UT on some good dirt roads. A very uneventful and easy COHP, but the views were still amazing for such little physical effort

Stopped to get the knoll on our way out to the Henry Mountains. I did this peak in a levi skirt, sandals and a blanket wrapped around me. It was later in the day and very chilly out.

My wife and I made a little two day road trip through Garfield and Wayne Counties, picking up a high point in each. We saw a lot of new country as well as some we had seen many times on our way to Lake Powell. Beautiful weather and a fun trip.

Wish we could have spent more time in this area. Flash floods wiped out part of Hwy 24 the day we were in the area. It was wicked crazy weather.

I first hiked and camped on Boulder Mountain in the 1960's with my dad and grandpa but didn't bag the highpoint until a trip to Fish Lake with my family and some friends' families. Hiked up from the roadside Forest Service sign with Mike Jones under cloudy/rumbling skies.
