Ascent Trip Report

The Baltimore County highpoint could not be more different than from the city. The county highpoint is located up on the Pennsylvania border in the town of Stiltz, about 40 miles away along Interstate-83 and Middletown Road. We followed the highway toward Stiltz in the heavy rain, and before we knew it, we were there.

There is no sign naming the town on the highway and the only hint we were in the right area was a sign for York County, Pennsylvania, and a junction sign for Pennsylvania state highway 895. The town apparently straddles the two states. The Baltimore County highpoint appears to be on the state line near a small Notary Public office. We called it good after a short walk in the heavy rain. Beth, bless her heart, even got out in the rain to claim it for herself, then gave me one of those "why did I marry a highpointer" looks.

From here, we drove north through the town of Sticks, then back into Maryland in the town of Lineboro. We continued southwest toward the Carroll County highpoint, which was just a few miles off the main route.
