Fulton County High Point Trip Report

Wallace Knob on Salem Knob quadrangle (1,138 ft)

To reach Wallace Knob from Salem, go to the US Highway 62B and US Highway 62 intersection on the west side of town and proceed 2 miles west on Highway 62 to Corkwood Road on the south side of the highway. Wallace Knob is visible to the west-southwest as you drive west along Highway 62. Turn south (left) onto Corkwood Road (gravel) and go 0.8 mile to a locked gate. The gate is not posted. There is also a house just west of the gate across the gravel road.

Follow the gravel road past the gate for about 0.6 mile east to the top of Wallace Knob. The gravel road passes a barn-like structure to the north, before heading steeply uphill to the summit, about a 300 foot elevation gain. The actual highpoint is a boulder at the edge of the woods, just north-northeast of a building on the summit. The summit also has a couple of communications towers on top. I looked for Andy Martin's and left a PVC register. There is somewhat of a view to the west from the summit area. It was a pretty decent highpoint by Arkansas standards.
