North Fork Mountain Trail

  North Fork Mountain is the driest mountain in the central appalachians as it lies directly in the rain shadow of Allegheny Front, which pulls down most of the precipitation.  There is no water on or near the top anywhere so bring whatever you will need!  I have been going up there for oh, 35 years!
Says Jim Newman

North Fork Mountain Trail is gorgeous, especially once you get to the top. Once on top of the mountain, looking down over what the locals
    call ''Shelby's Cliffs,'' you can see for miles and miles. Fantastic
