| Elevation:||2934 ft / 894 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI only had time to do the main high point. I was not able to get to the two provisional points. I will have to go back them later.
There was 6 plus inches of snow on the ground.
I used this address in the GPS to get to the trail head.
920 Sampson Rock Road
Frostburg, MD 21532
I drove up tower road ~.75 miles to the gate blocking access. There is a house right off the road by where the gate is located. Two dogs came out barking after I started up the hill. I then parked and started walking up ATV tracks in the snow. I then bushwhacked through the woods to the high point. I followed the clearing for the power lines up to the ridge line and then made my way North through some thick underbrush to the high point.
