Mount Davis (Script error: No such module "convert".) is the highest point in Pennsylvania. Located in the Script error: No such module "convert". Forbes State Forest near the hamlet of Markleton in Elk Lick Township, Somerset County, it lies on a gentle crest of a Script error: No such module "convert". ridge line extending from central Somerset County southward into Garrett County, Maryland known as Negro Mountain.

The high point was named for John Nelson Davis, an early settler, American Civil War veteran, surveyor, and naturalist known for his studies of the mountain's flora and fauna. During the Civil War, Davis served in the 102nd Regiment, Pennsylvania Infantry, Company E.[2]

The summit of Mt. Davis may be ascended by car or a number of hiking trails. Its surrounds are noted for their patterns of unusual circular stone formed by periglacial action. A metal observation tower with a relief map of the region stands near the true high point. Mount Davis ranks 33rd on the list of highest natural points in each U.S. state.[3]
