A small person-only gate is found to the left of the main (drivable) gate. It is open to the public more often than not, regardless if the main gate is closed/ locked. If arriving outside of the "normal" operating hours, climbers should call the school's number provided on this website (937-599-3010) in advance, to verify the person-only gate will still be open.

How is this different or add to what I already note on the website? Am I missing something in the Red Tape section that would confuse people?

It's worth mentioning there are actually two gates, one specifically for walk-ins only, so that a highpointer doesn't get upset or worried if the main (drivable) gate is closed.

In example, I called in advance of this past weekend. The main gate was supposed to be open on Saturday, but wasn't. Nobody was around. At least when I called/ double-checked in advance, the school just happened to also mention the walk-in only gate. This HP Summitpost page did not reference it, and the walk-in gate is not immediately noticeable. I think the walk-in only gate (to the left of the main gate) should be mentioned, just in case of a situation like what I had (where things were supposed to be a certain way but ended up differently).

sm0421Time and parking

It's about 86 miles from camp hill to Hoosier, I had a plane to catch and i was driving extremely fast and passing any car i can on country road. I drove almost 80 when i can. It took me an hour and half to get to Hoosier. So i think it should take a regular person about 1 hour 40 minutes to 2 hours, instead of the 'a little over an hour ' on the page.

Also the parking area is after you see the big career center sign, turn right into the school campus.

See bmolloy04's trip report for current info as of March 2015. Not greatly different, but useful nonetheless.

Firefly337Open on a Sunday!

Hasn't voted

I just visited on Sunday and the gates were open! I was traveling to a number of other high points and made good time so I at the last minute redirected a little to go to the Indiana and Ohio high points. I tried to call but no one picked up (it was already the weekend). Now it is during the school year so that might explain why everything was open but the person gate looks like it hasn't been closed in awhile. So if you're already in the area I say give it a try!
