Garrett County High Point Trip Report
Backbone Mtn (3,360 ft)
Date: June 2, 2001
Author: Michael Schwartz
See my Preston County WV report for details on a combined hike.
If doing the MD high point alone, park along US 219 at the well marked, orange blazed Backbone Mountain
trail, and hike the good trail to the summit. The "Hoye Crest" sign has been refurbished, and the area has
been cleared. There are a picnic table, camera stand, and register. Big change from the thorny bushwhack
required back in the 1960's.
