Ascent Trip Report

Maryland State Highpoint. Parked on the road and hiked up trail. It was a little tricky finding the trailhead, but the trail is clearly marked with big signs all the way up, including the MD/WV marker turnoff. Lots of trees on top, but still has a view. Large sign on top, as well as a large cairn and a mailbox with a register inside. Prettyhike with the leaves just starting to turn color.
