Phillips County Highpoint Trip Report
"County Line Rise" (4,120 ft)

We made the short jaunt down to the Phillips HP from the Logan HP, which is 6.7 miles south of the
US6/CR1 junction on the Logan-Phillips line. We bagged the published HP, then sought out the
ten 4,110 foot contours that are within about a 4 mile radius of the hp. Here are notes on each.
See the map links on cohp.org for the areas to reference these.
#1, 4, & 5 in Section 19: #5 is right on the road, area 1 is a distinct mound about 0.35 mile southeast of
area 5, among cultivated fields. Area 4 is on the southeast corner of CR1 and CR20.
There are some abandoned farm implements on this contour.
#2 and #3 in Sections 18 & 19: CR20 splits these areas, about 1/2 mile east of CR1. Area 3 is a few yards
south of the road. Area 2 appears to be along a fence junction 1/4 mile north of the road.
#6 in Section 30: This area is in the same section as the hp to the northeast.
Don't remember much about this one.
#8 is on the southeast corner of section 6, along a fence row.
#9 was hard to find. A windmill is in the general vicinity. We followed a fence line on the north side of this
windmill for about 1/2 mile. Hard to tell where this tiny contour is exactly.
#10 and #11 in Sect 18: These are the 2 southernmost points. The road splits #11, and #10 is a long,
narrow contour in the middle of the section.
We completed all of these in two hours, satisfied that if the Phillips hp ever changes, we have them all.
