Ascent Trip Report

First highpoint adventure for myself and my 3-year old son. Trip started well with a 2-hour drive to Mount Davis. Only had to turn around once due to a snow covered road that couldn't be passed. There was roughly 30" of snow on the "mountain" making the 1-mile trek from the parking area to the highpoint via the Highpoint Trail more difficult. My son absolutely loved hiking through the snow and climbing the observation tower. Great trip all around. Next highpoints planned are Delaware & WV in June.
