Ascent Trip Report

US State Highpoint # 16.
I drove to the summit parking area. This left a 0.6 mile hike with 400 ft elevation gain to the summit along a paved path. Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel bushes lined the path. I believe they blossom in June. In season there is also a shuttle to the summit, but it was not operating today.
