Ascent Trip Report

It is an easy hike but finding the CoHP is challenging depending on what time you begin the hike. We started at 3:50 PM on yellow trail (mid state trail) from the watatik parking lot on 119. We hiked at our best to the first slope with awesome view. You see an old stone wall. We took some pictures.

Next you continue on the yellow and after hopping on some rocks you get to take a diversion and enjoy the summit of mount watatic. You can see the east watatic summit from here which I think is a little lower but the view from there is unobstructed so you get a good panorama.

Next, you come down and continue on the yellow to wapak trail and go a little down until you get close the border line and look for the blue forest department sign on a tree. About 50 steps from this point, look around, and you can sense a highpoint and that's your county highpoint. It will be in between woods, with no views, no signs, no trail markers. Ok, so this means, you get to define your own CoHP, take a picture and return back to the main trail.

In all, it became dark by the time, we finished our ordeal. While descending, it was hard to see any trail markers and we had to use flashlight.
