The Great High Prairie - Prowers County, Lamar, Colorado

Gobbler’s Knob

Gobbler’s Knob is a group of Dakota Sandstone outcroppings located on Highway 287 about 23 miles south of Lamar.

Geologists believe the light-colored rocks were originally deposited by the wind during the Lower Cretaceous Age, between 100 and 140 million years ago. The light-colored sand—possible beach dune sane—of which these formations are composed, became cemented into more durable material than the surrounding rock and thus eroded away more slowly.

Gobbler’s Knob is easily visited as it sits next to the Gobbler’s Knob rest area.
