Geneva County High Point Trip Report

Date: November 11-14, 1999
Author: Fred Lobdell

The high point of Geneva County is located about a mile west of the village of Malvern. It is an open area and bisected by a paved secondary road.

From the intersection of AL rtes. 52 and 103 in Slocomb, go northeast on 52 about 4 miles or a little more to where a secondary road goes sharply right, at a larger than right angle. (This point is about a mile west of the center of the village of Malvern.) Turn right (southwest) and go about 0.2 miles to a height of land. Park here.

The land on the west side of the road is fenced, but the east side looks slightly higher anyway. Walk east several hundred into the large brushy field, going beyond a grove of trees, until satisfied that you've covered the high areas.

Long pants are especially recommended here; we emerged covered with burs and thorns. It is less unpleasant removing them from cloth than it is from flesh.
