Ascent Trip Report

As far as I can determine, this Bald Knob (there are several Bald Knobs in Pennsylvania), is the 11th highest named summit point in Pennsylvania. This highpoint was an easy driveup to many communication towers. The highest point appeared to be within one of the high fenced tower areas, so I walked around the perimeter of that fenced area in order to claim the highpoint according to county highpointing rules, even though this is not a county highpoint. There is no view from the summit due to the trees and I was unable to locate the summit benchmark. It probably lies within one of the fenced areas if it still exists. It addition, the lookout tower indicated on the topographic map I had was no longer there.
