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

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.

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.

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.

BConleyGreat HP  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2010


Had a little confusion finding the actual HP. Turned out I just didnt go far enough down the road saw the Maryland HP road sign and didnt drive past it to the road leading to the actual HP. Once we found it. Great HP, climbed the fire tower.

EleutherosDrifts of Snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 9, 2010


Trudged for 2 hours to reached the "summit" and back again in yard-deep snow. No snowshoes, so the going was slow but challenging. The trees were clothed in white and bent low under the weight of frost, obscuring the trail.

Date Climbed: Nov 22, 2009


The last of the Allegheny trifecta that I climbed. Climbing the tower was a bit more nerve racking than I had anticipated, but got some great pictures whilt up there.

Date Climbed: Oct 23, 2009


Drove down from Pittsburgh with Sarah for a trifecta highpoint weekend. We hit Mt Davis and Backbone Mountain on Oct 23rd with fellow SPer xDoogiex. Sarah and I then hit Spruce Knob the following morning. We timed the autumn color change perfectly. Sadly, it was foggy on the 23rd and our visibility was pretty limited. Happily, we woke up the next morning to clear skies and were able to enjoy beautiful views on Spruce Knob.

kteichertState Highpoint #3  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2009


Did as a 3-peak series with Backbone, and Spruce Knob. Loved the pride PA puts in their highpoint with the exhibits of wild child, and brutal parents. Loved the tower, but especially loved the stake driven deep into the rock near the tower. The true high point. ha ha
