Tenth HP on a 3 week road trip thru 17 states. Navigation back to the car after sunset required care. Good and cold.

Very nice short hike. It would have been better if it wasn't rainy and foggy. It was a great day when I headed for the mountain. This is #6. I did WVA the same day. Total White out there also.

Second of three high points for the day. Easy climb, even with a horrid cold. Well taken care of too.

Very fun hike. The trail is very well marked and easy to follow. Thanks to whoever takes care of the cairns and blazes!

We hiked in the evening and really enjoyed it.

First highpoint of the day, 2nd for the weekend. Went to Mount Davis afterwards and did Spruce Knob the day before. I half to admit I did not expect a climb like this. Good view at the top. Signed the log book and enjoyed the trip down. P.S. - Sorry to the person I told they were halfway there went they weren't even a quarter of the way....I lost my sense of distance I guess.

Nice hike - lots of up, but not too long. The summit was fun - huge cairn, a mailbox/summit register and a self-portrait camera stand for us solo hikers. Thanks MD.

Coming from Spruce Knob, found the trailhead on 219 in the late afternoon and quickly but carefully managed the slippery logging road in the rain. Unfortunately no view at all due to rain and clouds. HP #17.

Date Climbed: Apr 3, 2011


Routefinding was a little tricky due to the snow cover, which had bent most of the small trees to the ground, covering the trail. I didn't see another soul, but did hear some gunshots in the distance. Other than that, the only sound was snow dropping from tree branches. This was a fun little hike with great winter scenery. HP37
