Marion County High Point Trip Report
Date: February 9, 2001
From Haleyville proceed northwest for five miles on H13. Turn left on H172 for 1.0 miles then left again on
H241 for 2.8 miles. Turn left at this point onto an unmarked road and you will soon come up a hill to
(approximately 0.1 mile) note fenced-in water tank(s) on the right. The ground inside the fence is higher
than the surrounding surface. An individual six feet in height and weighing 160 pounds can barely squeeze
under the gates. Folks with other dimensions may have difficulty if they can't hurdle the challenging fences.
Area two is 0.2 miles from H241 where the road bends to the right and starts down a hill. Before beginning
the turn, take a gravel road that veers off slightly to the left. This driveway ends at a house where off to the
left, on a rise, is the highpoint. No one was home except for some outside dogs which, after they have
fulfilled their territorial defense duties, went into their befriending mode. This point could be considered
someone's extended backyard and private property concerns might need to be ironed out first.
