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."

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 little hike. you get to pass a state border marker, and there's a little picnic table to enjoy.

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.
