Ascent Trip Report

Followed previous trip reports. As others have mentioned, you need to look closely for the Maryland High Point sign at the trailhead. We drove about 0.2 mile up the forest road to a parking spot--could have gone farther but it was a pleasant morning for a walk with beautiful fall foliage.
