FATMAP difficulty grade
The 3,213-foot top of Mount Davis, the highest point in Pennsylvania, is easily-accessible by car and a short walk to a lookout tower.
But for a longer hike in the area, tackle this loop instead. This 5.4-mile loop follows a series of trails and a few sections of old road grade on the mellow top of Mount Davis.
The mountain itself is long and mostly flat--it extends a long ways south into Maryland.
As a result, you'll have to climb an observation deck on top of the mountain to get a view.
This loop follows the Shelter Rocks Trail, Shelter Rock Road, Timberslide Trail, and the Tub Mill Trail.
The trails are well-blazed, and some cool rock formations provide interesting stops along the trail.
