From exit 49 on I-95 drive west on GA 251. After 3.2 miles, GA 251 bears right (north)
but you stay straight on Holland Road. Go another 9.4 miles to the
junction with the road shown heading southwest toward Barrington Lake and the highpoint.
Follow this paved road 1.1 miles to where the gated woods road shown on the topo
leads south to the highpoint. The gate was open and, but for one large puddle
at the start, the road could have been driven to the base of the highpoint hill.
Walk the woods road to a point about 500 feet west of the top, at the base of
the obvious hill and just past a hunting stand. The jeep trail shown on the map
as going directly over the top is almost completely obscured and not worth the
trouble to follow. Hike uphill through open pine woods to the well-defined bump.
