Ascent Trip ReportAll my adult life I've wanted to visit the Pennsylvania Laurel Highlands. However, this was in order to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater rather than for peakbagging purposes. So following a morning and early afternoon spent touring that amazing product of design and execution and a lazy hike around the adjacent Conservancy grounds we made the detour to Mount Davis.
That said Mount Davis has much to praise - beautiful area, easy access on paved and high quality dirt roads, unspoiled forests surrounding, many hiking trails (if you want an alternative to a drive-up), interesting information boards about local geology and history, and a sturdy viewing tower on the summit with fine views and an intriguing 3-D display to explain why some adjacent mountains look higher.
On to Backbone Mountain and Spruce Knob before sunset...
