Nice little hike and a well marked trail. Watched rain coming in across the mountains until it hit us as we headed down. That and I almost stepped on the highest snake in Maryland...

The one thing that sticks out about Maryland's HP was that the Highpointers Club really kept up the summit area. There was a couple benches under the trees, a great HP sign, and a nice mailbox with summit register and other stuff inside. Did i miss a survey marker? We looked but couldn't find anywhere. State HP #17!!

Hiked it with my 65 year old dad (cancer survivor) and 5 year old son. My dad has lived in MD for about 40 years, so while visiting for a couple of weeks, I thought it time he bag his home state's highpoint. It was a cold, windy day, with a few flurries...Hard to believe it's late May. Also visited nearby Fairfax Stone, Canaan Valley, Blackwater Falls, and Swallow Falls State Park--all of them worth a visit. The downed trees at the latter due to Hurricane Sandy was astounding.

I climbed this one on the same day as Davis with some friends who were not avid hikers. They found it a bit difficult, but all in all, it's not bad. The sitting area at the top was nice and well taken care of.

Couldn't have asked for a better day to summit. Nothing but blue skies and the ground was covered in a blanket of snow that the sky had so graciously bestowed upon the land just prior to my arrival. Over 20 inches in places,it seemed, and it certainly made a perceptively simple and easy hike up into a tiring affair. Placed a rock atop the cairn and enjoyed the great views of MD to the East and West "By God" to the West from the summit apex. Got a certificate to prove that I was there; that I was, for the moment, standing higher that anyone else in MD.

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 when 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.

2nd of 3 highpoints for the day. Saw a very long, all black snake on the way up! Not sure what kind it was. It was pretty cool though.

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.
