Bake Oven Knob is a bit of a mixed bag. The lookout is spectacular, with expansive views on both sides. The climb up is also very easy, taking only about ten minutes. However, this easy climb means that the area is frequently very crowded, and there is lots of graffiti. The great views, short climb, and abundant wildlife viewing opportunities (birds, snakes, insects, etc.) make this hike very much worthwhile, despite its shortcomings.
