redmondSlightly lost but succesful  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2008
After stopping at the smallest church in the lower 48 states I went right past the trailhead. After a few miles I turned around and found it. Then again I blew right by the trail off the logging road, but realized that pretty quickly and turned around. Finally made the summit, turned around and headed to Spruce Knob.

Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2008
Climbed on May 27th, and mistook the MD/WV border for the actual highpoint. Then got home and realized I actually did not make it to the top. Climbed again with my wife this time and made the extra 200 yards or so to the real highpoint. Beautiful day, relaxing hike. Glad to have it done for real.

Made the short walk up the summit after driving from West Virginia's HP earlier the same morning. Nice views at the summit with a awesome certificate in the mail too. And the thick wire gate at the trail head was down, so you could drive up the dirt road a ways when i did this.

Climbed it with a college friend. Probably the hardest part was trying to locate the "trailhead," which is just an orange 'HP' written on a tree on the side of the road.

An enjoyable, easy hike up from the road. The trail blazes are gone, but the route is simple enough to follow. We had the summit to ourselves.

East Coast Hiking to Backbone Mt -- Highest Point in MarylandEnded up driving my 4X4 SUV almost to the peak, then walked the last 200 yard to peak. Nothing to see from up there, but bagged off another high point.

So did anybody know that there is another backbone mountain in Maryland 30 minutes away. I wondered around there for 40 minutes trying to find the highpoint via Mapquest directions. Finally I pulled out a map and realized I needed to be 20 minutes south of Oakland and not at Backbone Mountain 20 minutes east of Oakland. After that the hike was great, I really enjoyed it and bagged numbers 14 and 15 the same day.

Strugged up the side of the hill by the powerlines area through the thick brush, dense woods and no trail along the ridge. The summit has really changed over the years.
