The hike to the top of the highest peak in the Bulldog Knolls area is a cross-country routefind to the top of a peak overlooking the low Great Basin desert. There is no trail, so allow more time to cover the distance than you would for established trails. From this intermediate peak, you have excellent views of Red Mountain to the north and Gunlock Reservoir, just to its west, and the southwest flank of Pine Valley Mountains, behind Red Mountain. To the northeast, partially obscured by Jarvis Peak, are the salmon cliffs of Zion. Also peeking out behind Jarvis is the south end of St. George. To the south, you see the west cliff face of the area’s highest peak, which tapers to the lowland desert to the west. In the distance you can see the peaks bordering the Arizona Strip and new Parashant–Grand Canyon National Monument and the north edge of the Grand Canyon. The high mountain to the west-southwest is Mount Trumbull.
