From I-495, take exit 6, Naamans Road (DE 92), west 3 3/4 miles to a traffic light and right turn onto Ebright Road. Go 0.6 miles north to the Ebright Azimuth descriptive marker erected by the state of Delaware at the entrance to Dartmouth Woods on the right. Across Ebright Road, Turf Road leads into the mobile home development that covers the closed 450' contour. Wandering is in order, as there is no obvious highest point. Having said that, the verbatim text of a 1990 letter from the Delaware Geological Survey in response to a query on this subject can be reviewed here.
