A pleasant day for a road trip to western PA. A little hazy and warm, but a great day to be outside, none the less.
cool countryside and the fire tower makes for a nice touch.
Liked the observation tower but the views were uninspiring.
Drove up to the top and then walked to the HP. Below Average Views for PA, much better hikes in the northeast.
Throughly unexciting summit with average view even on a nice day.
Beautiful day and the second of three highpoints that day. Really enjoyed it and lunch at "Take Six" in Meyersdale.
My dog Spanky and I slogged through slush and mud to the summit.
Wife and I climbed this peak when we first met! Not too much to look at, but I still love PA mountains. Fun little hike and hey, you have to visit the highest peak in PA if you are near.
2nd loop of HP;
first of 3 in the same day...
at less than a mile from TH ran up it 3 times before returning to the truck
Paid this place a visit while visiting family in Pittsburgh. Took the High Point Trail with my dog. Saw bear and fox tracks in the snow, but not much else. Virtually had the place to myself.
Just us. Pretty windy...not too cold....nice day though.
Easy. No one at the park but me.
Left Cleveland on trip back to Tarheelia. Third State HP and 20th county of trip. Pretty country
Arriving at dusk we drove to the top
Third of three HP's for the day (WV, MD, PA). This marks my half-way point--HP #25! Nice clear day!
Beautiful area. Nice for camping.
Took the kids to visit the temporary Flight 93 memorial in Shanksville, PA and then drove down to Mt Davis. There is an observation tower to get you above the tree tops. There are also a number of nice hiking trails and historical/geographic markers around the summit. Very low key consistent with it being such a low elevation for a state high point.
Made the summit of Mt Davis after driving 7 hours to get there. It was very hazy so there was no view from the fire tower. We were going to camp in the area, but it was VERY dirty so I spoke with a ranger who said that he would not camp in the area if he was us. So, we left and went to Maryland’s H.P. and camped near there.
