The High Point Trail in Forbes State Forest, PA, is an easy 1.6 mile out-and-back hike to the top of Mount Davis, Pennsylvania's tallest mountain. The summit of Mount Davis sits at 3,213 feet above sea level, but unfortunately there isn't much of a view from the top of the mountain.

The trail heads to the summit of Mount Davis from a parking area to the north. At the summit, there's a 5 story overlook with steep steps to the top; however, below the overlook structure, there's no other view.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
