Nothing much here. A really tall tower with decent views, but the mountain itself is like a plateau so very little prominence.
We hiked the 1 mile trail from the picnic area though the woods up to the HP, just to say we got some hiking done. But it was lackluster, as was the high point itself. The views were great from the tower, which was insanely tall, and you could see 360 panorama. Really just another check mark on our list. State HP #18!!
Did this hike with a few friends who were not avid hikers. Pretty easy. We took a longer trail from the bottom and did some light bouldering on some rocks we passed, as well as the rocks across from the picnic area.
Did this with Maryland HP on the same day. HP #6
First of three high points for the day. Hiked up from the picnic area and it was easy, which is good because all the running around in the Catskills earlier in the week gave me a nasty cold. Nice observation tower and plaque area.
A bit tricky to find, at least from the directions Google gave me, but well worth it. The exhibits near the tower are very interesting and the tower itself affords a great view. Very pretty part of the country.
Second Highpoint of the day, went to Backbone Mountain, Maryland earlier in the day and Spruce Knob the day before. Make sure to climb the observation tower for some good views.
Nice area of the country to visit. I passed a small Amish convoy on the way there - drive slowly on those country roads...
BlackJack! hike from the parking area about .7 mile each way. nice way to strecth legs after driving from NYC
This was the first of 3 highpoints on the day. Really enjoyed the drive through this part of Pennsylvania.
October Climb with ice covered fire tower.
The signs for this HP are deceiving. Those Amish are tricksters.
Dark and Snowy
Very foggy up top, not much of a view from the tower. Had the summit to ourselves though.
This was my second SHP. I got there early and there wasn't anyone around.
WV-MD-PA in five hours
Just catching up to logging "summits" after seeing recommended sites to visit.
Part of a highpointing adventure through PA with TrailtrekerDawg.
Had to carry the pooch up the tower to enjoy the view.
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.
