History on name
Access and recreation
Mount Verstovia is accessible by a well-maintained public trail that, through a number of switchbacks, arrives at the top. An unmaintained trail continues on from the peak to the real Mount Verstovia or the colloquial Mount Arrowhead.
Snowboarding, skiing, and other winter sports are very popular in the bowl east of the mountain and the trail to the summit is marked with reflective signs on tree trunks to help snow aficionados find their way up in snowy conditions.
