Ascent Trip Report

Took the Mountain View Trail at Blue Knob State Park during a foggy day. The trail was nice and an easy hike till about where it met Beaverdam run which is a lovely little run full of waterfalls, the trail was full of water and rocks and was it's own stream so the trail makes a precarious climb over the stream and it's extremely slippery on the rocks. Slipped quite a few times, but the stream was very pretty like I said before other then that it was a real easy rest of the trip to the top, so-so views from the Pavia overlook much better to drive or walk to the ski resort and see the actual summit's views.
