Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2003


Took the kids to visit the temporary Flight 93 memorial in Shanksville, PA and then drove down to Mt Davis. There is an observation tower to get you above the tree tops. There are also a number of nice hiking trails and historical/geographic markers around the summit. Very low key consistent with it being such a low elevation for a state high point.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2006


Made the summit of Mt Davis after driving 7 hours to get there. It was very hazy so there was no view from the fire tower. We were going to camp in the area, but it was VERY dirty so I spoke with a ranger who said that he would not camp in the area if he was us. So, we left and went to Maryland’s H.P. and camped near there.

It was rainy and windy, but Erin and I hiked up the stairs to the top of the observation tower. We saw the lone pine tree that's featured on this page, but not much else.

Passing by on the way to WV and thought we'd visit PA's roof. Weather was good. I thought some of the rock formations down the street would make decent crevasse rescue practice.

My girlfriend completed her first state highpoint on Mount Davis. It was a pleasure to have her along for a hobby that I usually tackle alone. Hopefully, she'll complete some more with me soon.

The metal topographic map atop the adjacent observation tower really gives you a sense of the surrounding area.

"We are not that far from Mount Davis you know," I said to my wife at 7:30 PM while we finished hiking on Backbone Mt. the HP of Maryland. So we got in the car and drove through a thunderstorm in the dark to Salisbury, PA. The driving seemed more difficult than walking through crevasses on Rainier. Visibility was poor and I thought I was going to drive off the road. Don't they ever paint the highway lines in PA? Drove to the summit parking lot and found the HP and benchmark on a rock in the dark. Left summit at about 9:30 PM and still had to drive to Seneca Rocks, WV to get to our cabin. HP #14.

My seventh state high point and the first of three in one day. Nice tower! I was in Pittsburgh on business and took an extra day to see the highest "mountains" of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia.

Drove up to this highpoint. Was okay, nothing spectacular. Lots of fields of corn, and cows in the area. Beer bottles and graffiti thanks to the locals, must have gotten bored with cow-tipping.

2nd time at Mount Davis, 1st time there since I adopted this page. It was a nice day, but pretty hot. All the trails were way too overgrown.

My wife and I made this our 3rd highpoint. Amish guys in buggys racing on the dirt road to the top. Trees for miles around are dead. Heard that it had to do with the previous years ice storm. If all these trees fall, you'll get a pretty good view even without the tower.
