Ascent Trip Report

My son and I set out to capture our 5th state highpoint of the summer. After a 2-1/2 hour drive we found the trailhead and began hiking up the trail. Lots to see along this trail and easy to navigate as signs point you to an old state line marker and the highpoint. The highpoint is well maintained with benches. One of the best hiking experiences to date.
