Description

Martin Hill is a mountain ridge which connects Tussey Mountain to its east and Evitts Mountain to its west. The summit is one of the few in the Commonwealth which is free of radio towers and other man-made intrusions. The old lookout tower (which was removed in 2003)and radio towers are located on a spur of the mountain where the trail heads are located.

The 2,775 ft. summit is located in the 11,500 acre Martin Hill Wild Area and may be accessed via hiking trails, although there are no views from the summit, there are a few overlooks along the way. The topography here is rugged and can make for some challenging but rewarding hiking.
