Description

Driving down 219, the trail is very easy to miss. The trail is marked with either red paint or a fused HP on the trees. The trail switches between old logging roads and small portions of hiking trails. Near the top of the ridge, the trail veers left at a sign for Marker #3. Up the ridge a short distance, there is a junction. Left will take you to Marker #3 (West Virginia/ Maryland Boundary); taking the trail right will take you to the summit. There are some other trails at the top that appear to go down to the Maryland side.
