Marion County High Point Trip Report

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.
