Route Climbed: Mt. Davis Trail  Sucess!

HP #4...and Mt. Davis makes 3 (for the day). Nice drive through the PA countryside with some real good views from the tower.

It was rainy and windy, but Erin and I hiked up the stairs to the top of the observation tower. We saw the lone pine tree that's featured on this page, but not much else.

HPT  Sucess!

Passing by on the way to WV and thought we'd visit PA's roof. Weather was good. I thought some of the rock formations down the street would make decent crevasse rescue practice.

Mount Davis via High Point Trail

My girlfriend completed her first state highpoint on Mount Davis. It was a pleasure to have her along for a hobby that I usually tackle alone. Hopefully, she'll complete some more with me soon.

The metal topographic map atop the adjacent observation tower really gives you a sense of the surrounding area.

Mount Davis  Sucess!

"We are not that far from Mount Davis you know," I said to my wife at 7:30 PM while we finished hiking on Backbone Mt. the HP of Maryland. So we got in the car and drove through a thunderstorm in the dark to Salisbury, PA. The driving seemed more difficult than walking through crevasses on Rainier. Visibility was poor and I thought I was going to drive off the road. Don't they ever paint the highway lines in PA? Drove to the summit parking lot and found the HP and benchmark on a rock in the dark. Left summit at about 9:30 PM and still had to drive to Seneca Rocks, WV to get to our cabin. HP #14.

Unique landscape for a guy from out west.  Sucess!

My seventh state high point and the first of three in one day. Nice tower! I was in Pittsburgh on business and took an extra day to see the highest "mountains" of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia.

Drove up to this highpoint. Was okay, nothing spectacular. Lots of fields of corn, and cows in the area. Beer bottles and graffiti thanks to the locals, must have gotten bored with cow-tipping.

Route Climbed: Multiple trails Date Climbed: 8/21/05  Sucess!

2nd time at Mount Davis, 1st time there since I adopted this page. It was a nice day, but pretty hot. All the trails were way too overgrown.

Easy walk.

Route Climbed: Drive up and then climb up the tower Date Climbed: April 27, 2003  Sucess!

My wife and I made this our 3rd highpoint. Amish guys in buggys racing on the dirt road to the top. Trees for miles around are dead. Heard that it had to do with the previous years ice storm. If all these trees fall, you'll get a pretty good view even without the tower.

Second state highpoint. should have done it in winter.

Nice views from the top, at least for PA :-)

Route Climbed: drove, walked 1/4 mile to summit Date Climbed: 9/15/01  Sucess!

Mt. Davis is a big wide mountain, with a long steep drive to the top. I took a highpoint trip to West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Davis was my last one of the day. Nice view for PA Dutch Country, but nothing too special.

Route Climbed: Stairs Date Climbed: September 18, 2002  Sucess!

I did a solo ascent on a gorgeous September day. Fortunately, when I reached the "summit," another climber was there and he was kind enough to take a summit photo of me. Not a bad climb at all, unless you don't like stairs. Views from the top of the tower were...well... I guess as good as you can get in PA.
