Fun hike. Very short walk to the top. Met a couple from SD that was on a 13 week tour of the US.

After driving from PA’s high point, we made the summit after a short climb. There was not much of a view on top, but the pick nick table was great to sit on. After signing the registry and taking a few pic’s we walked back down.

HP #3...from Spruce Knob and via the smallest church in the lower 48 to the tree crowded top of Backbone Mountain. Fun little power hike.

Erin and I hiked up Backbone in the rain yesterday. No views to speak of, but we had fun scrambling on the slippery rocks near the state boundary marker. Then we drove on to bag the PA highpoint.

Started the day in Norton, VA and drove through West Virginia to get to the trailhead. Very nice evening hike. Well-marked trail. Nice summit. Mailbox, register, and certificates for hikers who complete this HP. HP #13.

This was my 2nd of 3 state highpoints in one day and my eighth state highpoint overall. Great weather for early spring!

Highpoint #12. Headed out before dawn while the family slept at the hotel. Very foggy; surprised to find people camped at the summit. You gotta love any state that has a town called "Accident."

mtsptfamRoute Climbed: Normal Trail to the summit Date Climbed: November 16, 2003  Sucess!


My wife and I climbed this mt. to the occassional rifle shot going off in the mountains around us. It's hunting season so wear bright colors. This was my 5th HP and my wife's 4th. The trail is fairly easy to follow, but at one intersection a few four wheeler trails all come together and it isn't marked well to see which to take. Other than that, a nice day with a little bit of a view since there were no leaves on the trees.

Nice day, blue skies. I got lost on the drive, but found the highpoint. I just missed the summit the first time, but this time it was in the bag.

This was a surprisingly nice hike to the top, with some decent views. Easy trail to follow.

A very nice spur-of-the-moment state highpoint. The path is easy to find thanks to the orange blazes and, despite the logging debris, it's a surprisingly entertaining and pretty hike. Took all of an hour or two. Very nice.

My friend Michael, and I climbed this mountain as part of my state highpoint quest. I enjoyed the nice easy hike to the summit and enjoyed the unexpected view to the east. The Highpointers club did a nice job of marking the trail.
