Ascent Trip Report

This is a nice and easy county high point in PA located just off I-81.

Take exit 134 off I-81. This is about 70 miles north of Harrisburg and 50 miles south of Scranton. Drive .6 miles into Delano. At the T make a right and follow .2 miles for sign to Lofty. Make a left and follow .8 miles to the Bears Head sign.

The gate was open, but I still parked near the road. I walked about .75 miles to the enclosed fire tower. There were also a couple other structures including a radio tower.

I like the idea of county high pointing, but access issues seem to be a recurring theme. It's nice to find ones like this.
