Third highpoint of XC drive from CA to ME. Nice walk through snow/ice encrusted trees to the summit.
Bagged the highpoint in the dark and in the rain. Arrived back to my car soaked and almost got lost in the dark. I won't soon forget this highpoint.
Saw a really big black snake on the way up the trail.
Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania. And this one is really close to Seneca Rocks.
Didn't get shot during deer season, and visited the tiny church nearby. nice one!
Old logging road was steep but simple.
Backl in the 1980s when we started our highpoint quest, there weren't any trail markers to the summit!
Hiking up to the left wasn't very steep, and I enjoyed the rockface and stone border monument. I hiked down the rightside trail. This was the second of seven HPs (plus Washington, D.C.) I would reach in two days' time. HP #26 for me.
SIDE-NOTE: I would like to dispute the "Smallest Church in the Lower 48 States" claim, nearby along Highway 219. I have been to several smaller churches, in the western States. Although, of these, this was definitely the nicest.
This will get your heart rate going, but as hikes go, I wouldn't call this overly steep.
Climbed it with a friend on a little road trip. I think it was my 9th highpoint at the time.
