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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
