Ascent Trip Report

Reached the Centre County highpoint after a long day driving along the backroads. Nearest town is Tyrone. I found the dirt road as PA 453 crests the mountain. Drove up a moderately steep good dirt road for about a half mile, then saw the cut off road that leads to the highpoint is gated. Its only a 100 yard walk to the highpoint. The tower has been taken down.The only thing left is a clearing which may grow in some day. The towers visible off to the southeast are in Huntingdon County and not a high point. No need to visit.
