chadbwSixth HP  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2012


A bit tricky to find, at least from the directions Google gave me, but well worth it. The exhibits near the tower are very interesting and the tower itself affords a great view. Very pretty part of the country.

Second Highpoint of the day, went to Backbone Mountain, Maryland earlier in the day and Spruce Knob the day before. Make sure to climb the observation tower for some good views.

Nice area of the country to visit. I passed a small Amish convoy on the way there - drive slowly on those country roads...

The signs for this HP are deceiving. Those Amish are tricksters.

Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2009


Just catching up to logging "summits" after seeing recommended sites to visit.
Part of a highpointing adventure through PA with TrailtrekerDawg.
Had to carry the pooch up the tower to enjoy the view.

highlandvillagerBetter than expected  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 2, 2011


After turning off of road 2002, my rental car wouldn't make it up the snow covered road, so I enjoyed a nice, quiet hike through the snow. I was surprised to see a few locals who had driven to the top, as well as a couple hiking up from the same point I had. HP35

Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2011


Better than a drive up, but not exactly taxing either. It was deserted and the view from the tower was pretty good. Scared up a few pheasants as well.

Date Climbed: Apr 16, 2011


After driving in a rain storm from Backbone Mountain to Mount Davis in the rain it was nice to finally reach the 3rd state HP in 24 hrs. Unfortunately there was no visibility from the summit tower.

chilkootLots of reading material  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 29, 1996


Plenty of plaques to read on the top. Came back in April 2009 with my kids and slogged through the mud along the trail to the top.

BigPond1My 1st Highpoint  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2010


I grew up in PA and decided that this was a good place to start "highpointing". Traveled to PA for a week long camping/ adventure/ homesick cure trip. Beautiful drive thru rural PA to this summit. Very easy to find and empty when I got there. Climbed the firetower and almost got blown off by the wind. Nice spot on the earth.
