Muddy mess  Sucess!

The lumberjack trail was muddy and a little annoying, Huckleberry was a nice stroll. The connector was the only real elevation gain. Nice and easy, and a decent tower on top.

Tower views  Sucess!

We decided to hike up the Lumberjack/huckleberry trail up 8 miles, since this was the only real hiking of our 5 HP trip through the Mid Atlantic. No real views on the way up the trail, except for the tower at the summit of course. Great weather day, no clouds. State HP #16 for me.

WV  Sucess!

Ninth HP on a 3 week road trip thru 17 states. Road was snowed over so had to hike the last 1 mile. Afterwards drove over to Backbone Mtn for sunset. Seneca Rocks were stunning.

Total White Out  Sucess!

Not a great day for the views. It was a great day when I headed for the mountain but all fog when I got there. This is #5. I did MD the same day. Total White out there also.

Eight HP  Sucess!

I grew up in Charleston, WV, so I'd wanted to climb this one for a long time. The road up is a lot of fun and the top is spectacular with the spruce and boulders (though that's not an unbiased opinion). The view from the tower is great.

Amazing views  Sucess!

Highpoint #3. Amazing views on a gorgeous, surprisingly cool, August weekend. The colors are amazing even in the summer. Creating an album of my favorite photos to link to this site as we speak, since I took over 100 while up here.

Nice  Sucess!

Great summit. Wish I had time to hike some more of the trails.

Impressive mountain  Sucess!

I was surprised by the sheer mass while driving from Harrisonburg and through the tiny mountain settlements. Tons of chipmunks and wild turkeys on the mountain as well. Nice views from the tower but the brush was a little thick to see a ton.

#23  Sucess!

Beautiful day. After car travel sidelined highpoint adventure the day before, we rocked the lumberjack trail to the huckleberry trail, a nice leisurely 16 mile round trip adventure.

Highpoint #2  Sucess!

Originally planned to hike here from the Seneca Creek trail down to the falls and up Huckleberry Trail to summit. After a night camping at Judy Springs, we set out down Seneca Creek. It was then that the full scope of my girlfriend's crippling phobia of snakes was realized. Turned around and a long hike back to the car to a short drive to summit. Will have to come back again sometime to fulfill my original plan.

Spruce Knob  Sucess!

Quick detour to Spruce Knob during a day hiking at Seneca Rocks. There's some nice solitude here once you get a little distance between yourself and the summit tower loop trail.

OK  Sucess!

I drove up this peak sometime back in the mid-90s. More recently, I have participated in trail races at the nearby Mountain Institute.

Clouds and fog  Sucess!

Some views on the drive up but the top was covered in fog and rain so there was no view at all. All to myself at the observation tower, but windy and cold. HP #16...on to MD same day.
