Ascent Trip ReportParked on US 219 south of Silver Lake, WV at the small pull-off next to the blue "Maryland High Point" sign. A little over a mile gradual incline up to the summit. The Highpointers Club has taken great care of this one, with a summit register inside an old mailbox, including a guidebook to all 50 state high points inside it to look through, and a bench which it also looks like they've donated. Nice views of the surrounding farmland of western MD and eastern WV. Maybe a mile north of the trailhead, you can also stop by the smallest church in the lower 48 states... which is only maybe twice the size of my truck!
