Ascent Trip ReportCentre County is aptly-named, being in the center of the state. Its highest point is easy to visit, a broad hilltop with a radio tower, accessed by a good gravel road. From Altoona, I drove north on Interstate-99 to Tyrone, then PS-453 for seven miles to a bend in the road. I exited the road and drove a lesser track another mile to a gated road on my left. I parked here.
The weather was dismal, with dense fog and steady rain. Fortunately, the hike was short, a quarter mile walk with about 30 feet of gain to the top. I couldn't see anything, so after a moment or two, I returned to my car and drove back into Tyrone.
