       Towering over the Mount Rose Highway at an elevation of 9,710 feet is the beautiful Rose Knob Peak, seen in many episodes of the series. In June of 1968, the only filmed episode in the history of the series to be filmed here was, "Kingdom Of Fear", shot right below the face of Rose Knob Peak on a dirt service road, while the meadow shots were once again filmed at Gooseneck Meadow in Martis Valley near Truckee, California.

       The specific region is a wide overlook that offers a very unique view of Lake Tahoe's Crystal Bay and Stateline Point. In the story, the Judge's prisoners are toiling hard to get gold for him and the Cartwrights and Candy are amongst them. In one memorable scene Hoss lets an ore cart rush down the rails, and in another Joe escapes and scurries down the mountainside with the lake coming into view.
