Dale County High Point Trip Report

Date: July 21, 1999
Author: Bill Jacobs

The county highpoint is located approximately two miles southwest of Ariton, AL on H51. Just prior to CR11 is a crest on H51 which is part of a large area shown on the topo map as the 550 foot contour section. The highest point appeared to be the residence off to the right. I drove up the driveway but was unable to make contact with the owners. The contour section extends into a farm area to the southwest and would have liked to have explored this direction but could not do so without permission. The left side of the road is in the contour area also but, as I recall, appears to be down-sloping.
