Ascent Trip Report

Parked near the "Maryland High Point" sign beside US 219 and followed the standard route along the roadway and then trail. The route appears to be even more well-marked than in the past, with signs at critical junctions pointing the way. When we arrived at the summit a family group (parents and seven children) as well as another couple had already made it to the top.
