From Cloudland, Ga., travel north on GA 157 for 4.6 miles to Gilreath Mill Rd. on the left. This point is 1.3 miles south of Mt. Olive Church. Turn left onto Gilreath Mill Rd. and go 3.2 miles to State Line Rd.. Turn left onto State Line Rd. and go 0.2 miles. At this point the land on the right side will dip down to road level. Look for a faint woods road leading in from the main road. The entrance is covered with limbs so it may be a little hard to locate. Park nearby.

From the north traveling south on GA 157, go south 4.2 miles into Walker County. Look for the Walker County Fire/Rescue station on your right. From this point continue another 0.2 miles to High Road, which is County Road 388, on your right. This road may be easy to miss, so be alert. After turning onto High Rd. go 0.2 miles to a 4-way stop intersection. Continue straight ahead 2.3 miles to State Line Rd. Turn right onto State Line Rd. and go 0.2 miles and follow the directions above.

Travel by foot up the old woods road about 100 yards to the highpoint. The trees are mostly hardwoods with not much underbrush. This property is not posted; however, it is for sale. Future visitors to this highpoint may have home owners to deal with.
