Ascent Trip ReportAlthough there is a trail to the summit of Morrow Mountain, my wife, Geri, and I decided to drive to the top since we were a little pressed for time. Morrow Mountain is located within Morrow Mountain State Park and there is more to do here than just climb a mountain. We had hoped to camp here, but it was too early in the day to quit, so we moved on after visiting the highpoint and the Francis Kron Homestead. The summit has several good scenic overlooks and two large information signs on each side of a summit plaque. I found benchmark "No. 2" a very short distance from this area. From the size of the summit parking lot, this area must get a lot of use at times.
