HP #24  Sucess!

2nd of three this day. (with PA and WV). It was nice to get out and work up a sweat with a fast pace after driving for a while. Not much in the way of views, except a window to the south. The drive down though, from PA, was beautiful this time of year. Must have passed up 20 or so photo opps. Stopped and took a few, but had to get down to WV before dark.

Passing through  Sucess!

Short little thing. Took a minute to find the trail, which is mostly a logging trail with HP's spray painted on trees. Nice views up high!

nice short hike   Sucess!

The guide books drawings of the route is disproportionate. The alternative leg towards the state marker 3 is a tiny short thing and it comes right before the summit.

Larvitour Stop #2  Sucess!

Climbed this one after doing Mt. Davis earlier in the day. The approaches couldn't be more different: Mt. Davis was flat as a pancake, but this one was uphill all the way. Nice views from the summit--I'm glad I made it up here before the leaves came out.

Jogged up through the snow while wife and kid explored the tiny church nearby

Great short hike!  Sucess!

Another life-long Maryland resident and hiker who had never been here before; short strenuous hike on a gorgeous fall day! Pretty sure we were the only hikers to sign the High Point log today...Might be fun to try this one again in the snow!

HP #7  Sucess!

My boyfriend and I were in the area, so we decided to climb it. We had a nice hike up to the summit and met another highpointer along the way. This was my 7th highpoint and my boyfriend's 3rd.

Winter   Sucess!

Only people to hike it in the winter according to the summit log. We had to bare boot through a foot of mostly consolidated snow.

State HP #19  Sucess!

Hiked to top with Kate, and had the entire place to ourselves. Great hike, and nice marker at the top.

HP #14  Sucess!

Third highpoint of XC drive from CA to ME. Nice walk through snow/ice encrusted trees to the summit.

HP #7  Sucess!

A fun hike off the beaten path and had the top to ourselves to watch some rain clouds roll in. Made for a great experience on a great high point!

#37  Sucess!

Another one where I could not find the benchmark.

The day had gotten sunnier by this point and the hike was short and fun. I did not see a soul on the trail. Loved the views from on top. Nicely developed area at the highpoint.

On my way from Mt. Davis, on way to Spruce Knob...

# 28  Sucess!

Did the semi-illegal way by driving up to the crest, parked, and hiked about .2 miles to the top. Nice views. Drive through WV was very nice afterwards. Definitely take the time to check out the church near the TH.

Snow on ground  Sucess!

Freak snowstorm came in the previous day, so the dirt road from 219 was surprisingly muddy and had a couple big ditches. Walked from 219 to summit, 4.1 km total.

Number 2 On The Day  Sucess!

Hiked up from the West Virginia side of the Mountain after driving up from Spruce Knob in Virginia. High point number two on the day with Dad. Spent a while on the top looking for the USGS marker. Dad even looked it up on his geocaching website to no avail. Decided we couldn't search for too long as we were headed north to Pennsylvania and wanted to beat the sun.
