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. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
