Ascent Trip ReportAs far as I can determine, Glade Mountain is the 4th highest named summit point in Pennsylvania. I parked my car in a small turnout directly across the road that passes by Glade Mountain on its east side. There was a road on Glade Mountain's north side, but it was blocked by a locked gate, however, there was a path around it. I followed the road on the other side of the gate a few hundred yards before jumping a pasture fence and ascending the steep north slope of Glade Mountain. There was no trail, but most of the time the vegetation was not very thick and I had a fairly easy climb, except for the warm weather. Grab views of Deer Valley Lake to the northeast at the beginning of your hike since the rest of it will be in a forest with no summit vistas.
