MarlinHard to find the "summit"  Sucess!


Several bystanders inquired what I was looking for as I searched for the USGS brass marker. The western highpoints are a lot easier to find.

Hiked from the neighborhood a few blocks away with Kate, Dana, & Trevor. I was very excited to find the marker and get some photos at the peak ;-)

We stood at the fence-line for photo ops. At least there was a bit of a view!

A walk in the park, literally. Made a loop from Van-Ness UDC station for a total distance of 4.9 km.

Quick stopover on the way to WV. Covering state highpoints bases in case of statehood.

We followed the directions on this site to get to the closed off fence area, operated by DOT, up the small hill near the school parking lot. I guess it's the HP of Wash DC, and we were there, just in case. You never know when DC will gain statehood?

Date Climbed: Dec 13, 2012


First high point! Went back a second time when I realized the marker was outside the fence. I recommend going over to Rock Creek once you are done for a nice hike.

cjrandallWhile in DC on business  Sucess!


I've climbed a number of county summit in California (where I live) but was here on business, so thought I'd get out and tag another HP. Did it in the middle of the night, so it was a bit of a challenge to find the benchmark, but I did find it eventually. Easy stroll up from the Tenleytown metro stop.

cheetah262Fort Reno+  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 13, 2009


My mom and I did the Circulator bus/Red line route,stopping in at the Whole Foods afterwards to replenish ourselves after such a strenuous climb! If you want to add some "city walking" to the trek I recommend what we did---after Whole Foods we walked over to the National Cathedral, which is beautiful and has fantastic gargoyles. Go up the bell tower for a good view on Fort Reno and the rest of DC. From there we headed over to the National Zoo to see the cheetahs and the pandas. Finally, we had a late lunch at the Afghan Grill, down the road from the zoo. From there we walked down to DuPont Circle and caught the metro back to our hotel, The Channel Inn right on the Potomac!

2skinnersNot really one of my U.S. Highpoints, but I'll take it  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2008
I have pretty much done all of the highpoints that I am going to do on the East Coast for this year, so I figured this one would just be a bonus of sorts. I drove to the parking lot near the school and walked around the fence and up to the highpoint. Nothing fantastic. Nice crisp Sunday afternoon though, so it was actually quite pleasant.

tiogaAnother HP  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2008


Visited in my work clothes on the way back from a visit to a contractor in Northern Virginia. Took a few wrong turns in trying to get to the area but eventually made it. Spent about 10 minutes total in the park and easily found the natural highpoint. I finally hit this one, since I have made plans for the last 9 months to do it.

RedwicA "Bonus" To A Highpointing Trip!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2008


After making a big loop, reaching seven State Highpoints during the prior two days, I finished my Mid-Atlantic Loop Trip with a morning visit to a "bonus" HP, Point Reno. Beautiful weather, no shady characters. The closest parking areas were taken up by school staff and construction workers, so I parked along Cumberland, just across the street from the park, and had a pleasant walk up the park's grassy slope to the summit.

Stopped by on my way home from WV. Nice little park, although there were a few sketchy characters hanging around.

Get off at the Tenleytown/AU stop on the Red line. Head out of the subway and go North up 40th/Fort.(They run parallel) Go past a "Whole Foods" to Chesapeake. Take a right(East)and look for the gravel road on your left. It runs past a small stage up the hill. You can see the stage on Google Earth. It's obvious where the highpoint is. Walk up to the top and you're there. It takes about 10 minutes round trip.
