Ascent Trip Report

Blehhh another drive-up summit with no good trail all the way up (did WV's high point earlier today which also seems to be drive-up only). At least for this one it's debatable where the base of the mountain actually is... this summit is just the highest point of a large plateau area which even has a couple of paved roads come up to an elevation almost as high as the high point. Pennsylvania's done well with appreciating their high point, there are a bunch of plaques and signs about the history of the area and what's it's being used for now clustered around the base of the tower.

Note for future "climbers": The paved road to the summit only comes in from the north side. There are some decent quality gravel roads coming in from the south but these are very poorly signed and I doubt GPS directions would be much good here (I don't use one myself, for exactly these types of reasons). There's a board with some maps of the state forest and surrounding areas where S Wolf Rock Rd enters the Forbes State Forest.
