Descent

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.
