Walking Directions

Those that are making the trek on foot are invited to park at Primary Health Network. The address is 200 Prushnok Dr, Punxsutawney, PA 15767. This lot is 1.3 Miles from Gobbler’s Knob. *This is not a busing location.*

At 3 a.m. there is one-way traffic to Gobbler’s Knob begins near Wal-Mart, but — even then —you will not be able to drive to Gobbler's Knob. Traffic will be redirected back to town before reaching Gobbler’s Knob.

Trekking to the Knob

For the brave — and stout — of heart, you can hike up to Gobbler’s Knob. The walk up Woodland Ave. is approximately 1.5 miles, but it’s uphill the entire way. It is a strenuous jaunt, especially in inclement weather. Many, however, have found it a great way — weather permitting — to avoid the wait for the buses.

Buses to Gobbler's Knob will run from 3 a.m. until 6:30 a.m. from the following locations:
