Trailhead InfoFebruary 11 2003 at 12:17 PM
Response to Backbone Mountain, Maryland (3,360 Feet)
I've hike the MD HP twice before in 1999 and 2001. My post here is in reference to driving past the trailhead Jan 2003. Since I knew where to look, I was looking for markings of the trailhead. Going south on 219 there is some big MD HP spraypainted on the guardrail. However going north (from the south) there is no clear sign. The best early warning going north is passing the wind farm at the ridge of Backbone Mt before the Trailhead to the MD HP. If you see the sign for the Smallest Church, you've gone too far. Remember the trailhead for the MD HP is in WV, as is almost all the hike. I hope this helps.
