Mt. Davis – Pennsylvania’s High Point

This past Saturday, I visited Mt. Davis for a few hours. Mt. Davis is Pennsylvania’s high point. Following is a handful of photos from the top, including a 360 degree panorama shot from the top of a 50 foot tower present at the peak.

    Very cool. I used to go to summer camp near there at a place called Deer Valley. We would hike from camp to the top of Mt. Davis as a day trip.

    I don’t see pictures of the highest natural point in PA in your collection. I don’t know if it still is, but there was a boulder with a little metal disk on it at the time to mark THE spot.

    The tower was there, but under construction at the time, so I never got a chance to go to the top.

    One of the better parts of the day trip was coming back down to camp. There was this steep, long hill that you could roll down.

    We looked around for the official marker, but could not find it. It could have easily been covered by something at the time. I wish that I had done a bit more research prior to heading up there so I would have known exactly where to look for it.

    I have a collection of photos taken the next day at Swallow Falls that I will be posting in the next day or two.
