Ascent Trip Report

I had work I was supposed to finish in Pittsburgh, but when I saw weather reports for a sunny January day near 60 I took the day off. This was the third peak of the day.

We parked on MT. Davis Rd. (sr2004) just south of the peak (with a GPS reading of 0.44 mi. to the summit), crossed a field to an old forest track that headed uphill on an easterly slant but soon gave up on that and bushwhacked uphill. Wandered the nearly flat wooded top a bit searching for the high spot. No views on top but some nice southerly views on the way up and down.
