Reached the high point at 8:30 am on July 30, 2009. I forgot the Highpointers convention was going on. The tower was open so my daughter and I climbed to the top. It was a bit foggy due to the rain/storms that went through the night before. Nice area and park. Would like to go back to spend some more time.

After driving through endless miles of New Jersey suburbia and traffic lights, this state park was a treat! Quiet and peaceful with nice views and a great cool wind. LOVED IT!

Date Climbed: Sep 23, 1985


My 9-year old daughter Vanessa and I started our highpoint quest in September 1985, going to Vermont, New Jersey, and Delaware. 24 years later I completed #49, and have no intent to go to Alasaka.

Date Climbed: Jan 10, 2009


Climbed this in lots of snow, and right after a ice storm. So branches of shrubs were hanging over the trail, making hiking very hard. It was around -12 with the wind chill, but still a great hike with a clear view!

mthomasNot quite a hike...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 28, 2003


Drove from Connecticut after Thanksgiving to tag this easy highpoint. At least to make it more interesting, it was raining hard, so I climbed this in full-on autumn conditions...

Drove over from Scranton, PA for my 6th state highpoint. It was very windy and quite cold up top. We couldn't believe how few people were there - we only saw 5 other visitors. We only hiked from the parking lot, but we did take a nice little hike around the swamp in the park.

Nice quick side trip during a long run on the AT. Bought two grilled cheese sandwiches and filled water bottles at the concession stand.

It was rather windy when we got up there. No obelisk ascent, as it was closed for winter. But not bad looking for a highpoint!

RedwicNice HP, But Windy!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2008


When I reached this HP, storm clouds were quickly moving in and the wind was really picking up speed. I like the summit obelisk/ monument. I could even see it a few times many miles away, after leaving High Point State Park.
This was the sixth of seven HPs (plus Washington, D.C.) I would reach in two days' time. HP #30 for me. 60% complete!!! Woohoo!!!
