Pennsylvania High Point - Mount Davis (Elevation 3,123 Feet)
Our Visit Mt. Davis In Southwest Pennsylvania, The Keystone State's High Point
- August 22, 2008
Another state high point is in the bag! Bernie and I drove across Pennsylvania
(from New Jersey)
to stand on the Pennsylvania High Point.
Mount Davis is located in Somerset County in southwest Pennsylvania.
I can give solid directions from the north: From Somerset, PA, travel
south on State Road 219 to Meyersdale. In Meyersdale, turn right on SR 2004
(Broadway - there is a large sign for Mt. Davis at this spot). This is Mt. Davis Road.
Take that road all the way to the park that includes the mountain. Keep in mind there
are a few twists, turns and forks in the road. Simply stay on the main road
and there are signs directing
motorists toward Mount Davis.
This high point page is part one of four parts. After visiting Mt. Davis, Bernie and I visited
two more state high points later in the afternoon followed by a fourth the next day.
We stood on four state high points - a grand slam - in 25 hours! Along with
Pennsylvania, we made it to the high points of Maryland,
West Virginia and

It was a pretty day in the Alleghany Mountains of Pennsylvania!

Oh the excitement! Photos from our drive.
We drove far into southwestern Pennsylvania on Interstate 76, the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Four
tunnels go through north-south ranges that are
part of the Appalachian Mountains. I snapped this photo as we drove on
the highway approaching the Tuscarora Mountain Tunnel near Willow Hill.
|We were close to Mt. Davis when
we spotted a pretty area of the country near Summit Mills.
Bernie, a professional photographer, went out to capture some of the scenery.
I merely sat in the passenger seat and photographed the road and Bernie respectively.
||We saw Amish locals riding
horses on the roads.

We turned left (south) on the main dirt road and parked in the main parking lot.
It is a short walk to the Pennsylvania high point from there ...
