Ascent Trip Report

I did this one with my 6 year old son, Aidan. The trail was very easy to follow and it took us about 1 hour to hike up. The summit has a mailbox with a MD flag. No trail register in the mailbox. There is also a picnic table. The MD/WV state border marker is located about 1/4 mile south of the summit. The trail is mostly in the shade.
