Ascent Trip Report

A pleasant hike up from road, hiked up with dog Chunk. There are signs for a "marker #3" as well as the highpoint, so I hiked to "marker #3" and discovered that the rocks there are extremely slippery. It is a triangular concrete marker that marks the point where the border to West Virginia takes a turn.
There is a nice view just prior to the summit, but you don't know it if it is cloudy.
