Sarasota County High Point Trip Report

Author: Fred Lobdell

From the exit off I-75 for FL 70, go east on 70 for just about 12 miles. Turn right (south) on Verna Rd. and go about 2.3 miles to Singletary Rd. Turn left (east) on Singletary and go 1 mile. Turn left (north) into an area called magnolia Hill and go about 0.6 miles to the height of land.

This area is being developed, but no postings are in evidence yet. There are a number of pricey homes in the neighborhood, but as of this writing there is a fair amount of original ground left.

I stood on all the high areas and saw no place higher. A number of the sandy mounds exist because they were pushed up by bulldozer to make a depression for water. Again, I did the best I could.
