The Limekiln Knoll 7 1/2-minute quadrangle is located near the eastern margin of the Great Basin in north-central Utah, immediately south of the Idaho-Utah state border, and approximately 85 miles north of Salt Lake City in Box Elder County. The dominant topographic unit, the West Hills, is a segment of the Bannock Range which extends from the Snake River Plain in southern Idaho to the Promontory Mountains north of Great Salt Lake. The West Hills are bordered on the east by the Malad River Valley and on the west by the Pocatello Valley. Both are nearly flat, fault-bounded valleys typical of the Basin and Range Physiographic Province and are covered by Lake Bonneville sediments and loess. The total relief of the Limekiln Knol1 quadrangle is nearly 2,700 ft, from approximately 4,500 ft above sea level at the eastern mouth of Portage Canyon to nearly 7,196 ft at the summit of West Peak in the central ridges of the quadrangle.
