Joseph ClaghornHP #18  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2009

Joseph Claghorn

Did the +/- one mile walk-up from the picnic area on a relatively flat trail around dusk. The trail markers were a little confusing, but I was able to find the highpoint before all light was gone (no flashilight). Stargazing from the tower on a clear night with a new moon would be incredibly good.

osatrikSHP #18 in 1987  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 23, 1987


The only time I bagged 3 state highpoints in 2 days, and I suppose most highpointers do the same. Our family did this to summit number 18-20 in the 21st month of our highpoint quest. I finally completed my SHP quest at number 49 in June, 2009, and have no ambition to go to Alaska, having spent 40 hours at 20,320 feet (same elevation as Denali summit) on Aconcagua in 1997. If I do another 2-3 week climb someday, it will be in Nepal, not the USA.

Trail from the picnic area was quite wet from recent rain but hiking through the laurels was beautiful. Lovely part of the country.

Date Climbed: May 23, 2009
My girlfriend and I did the 3 mile hiking loop up high point trail and then down shelter rock trl back to the picnic area. On the way down the shelter rock trl we got caught in a killer rainstorm and were drenched to the bone by the time we got to the car. As soon as we got to the car, of course, it quit raining and the sun came out:)

HP #2, Spruce Knob is next!

Not much to write about concerning this Highpoint. The Tower was nice, especially for my 7 year old. A lot of knats on the trail leading to the summit.

Didn't climb the tower to see the views, but that whole area of PA is nice.

This was the third state highpoint for the day (Maryland and West Virginia earlier). Amazingly there was nobody around on the summit area.

Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2002


I (with my wife (Tracy) and son (Alex), then almost 2 yrs old) did this as part of our first family HP trip.

Yes, we did it as a drive up! There are great views from the observation tower.

RedwicI Like The Observation Tower!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008


I really enjoyed the views from the summit Observation Tower. I took photos at the heavily-dented, boulder-mounted U.S. Geological Society disk, as well. Nice hikes all around the area, including an interpretive section.
This was the third of seven HPs (plus Washington, D.C.) I would reach in two days' time. HP #27 for me.

redmondDrive to the top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2008
Drove to the top after a long day on the highway from NYC. Managed to get to the top right at sunset. Hiked around a bit before finding the USGS marker and climbing the tower. Great view from the top, but I think I enjoyed driving through the little villages more than the summit. After a night in a hotel headed to Backbone and Spruce Knob the next morning...with a short stop at the smallest church in the lower 48.

Drove to this Highpoint. I've seen much better views in my lifetime, but it is still a highpoint nonetheless. Glad to have this one done.

StumblingBearBest Drive To  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 5, 2007


This has got to be one of the best drive-to summits. In fall the color was great and the Amish countryside made for a feel of a place back in time. We drove the full circle around the summit before returning to rat race interstate.

Walked up on the Highpoint trail. Kinda of confusinf with different trails intersecting the trail with no markers or signs. Liked the views atop the summit tower though.

Stopped by on our way skiing. Pretty good snow dump the night before: 1 - 2 feet blocked the trail. With snowshoes we might have made it, but no such luck.
