The Summit Trail (blue blazes) begins at the parking lot on Fiddler’s Creek Road, and climbs steeply to the meadow at the top near the western end of Baldpate. The trail begins with a gentle rise through oaks, tulip poplars, and hickory for about a quarter mile, then slices up diagonally across a steep rocky slope, with increasingly airy views of the forest floor below. At about .5 mile, the trail ascends a stone staircase built by volunteers through a boulder field. A few hundred yards further, it turns right onto the trace of an old logging road, and in about 50 yards turns sharp left into the woods. After passing several cottage-size boulders edged with moss, the path crosses, at about .8 mile trail, the driveway from Fiddler’s Creek Road above the old Kuser Estate House. The trail continues straight across the driveway, and after about 100 yards turns right through a gap in an old rail fence, up into the aging apple orchard, winds left, passes through another fence opening beside a dogwood in the upper corner of the orchard, and emerges into the mountain-top meadow near its eastern margin. At that point, near the picnic tables, the trail ends at a junction with the white-blazed Ridge Trail, which runs to the center of the meadow, angles back towards the western edge of the meadow, into the woods, and turns sharp left down to meet the driveway below the lodge (1.3 miles total).
