Thunder in the Valley bike rally is held in Johnstown in June and both Bedford and Ligonier hold their annual Fall Festivals in October.
Every season is beautiful on the Knob. The people are friendly. Wildlife abounds. Oh! Did I mention the sunsets? A quick 1-1/2 mile drive to the very tip top of the mountain where the ski lodge is located gets you to some of THE most spectacular sunsets you've ever seen and, in the fall, a majestic panoramic view bursting with all the colors of autumn - it is quite a view to behold - after all, Blue Knob IS PAs second highest peak! Come up and enjoy the tranquility of it all - it is another world up here....
I am also on the mountain, so if you have any questions or concerns, I am available!
Year round, seasonal, and weekend residents share the mountain with a host of various wildlife. Little critters (chippies and racoons) abound, crow, hawk, turkey vultures (saw my first the other day!), porcupine, ground hog, fox, coyote, bobcat, mountain lion (so I've heard!), a couple of species of snakes, and, of course, can't forget the black bear (had a vistor on my patio a couple of weeks ago!). So don't forget your camera! Plenty of great nature photo ops here. And please, don't feed the bear! They are wild animals and pretty much keep to themselves, but you still don't want to mess with them! Oh, the people are great, too! Very friendly!
