Citrus County High Point Trip Report

This area lies on a golf course. When I first visited it in the fall of 1999, I bushwhacked in from the paved county road to the north, not realizing that the area had been converted to a golf course. The area between the golf course and the county road north of it is now being developed, so it would appear that the best way to access this point is through the golf course. As you're approaching the area from the east on county 486, a low ridge will appear to your front several miles west of US 41. Turn left into the development and kind of feel your way toward the golf course set on the ridge crest. (I'm sorry I can't be more specific as to directions, but I didn't take notes. It's pretty obvious where you have to go, anyway.) You can park alongside the course and walk along paved cart path until you get to several hills, a distance of just a few hundred feet. The highest of these is the CHP. I don't think you will have any trouble as long as you stay out of the way of the golfers. But just in case, you might want to bring your clubs.
