Randolph County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: July 19, 2000
Randolf County takes you into the back country of Georgia
giving you a flavor of life in rural communities
if you take the time to walk into the old country stores.
For me that's a necessity in order to find out where I'm at.
From Richland, GA proceed 4.0 miles south on H520. Turn right on CR84 for 9.7 miles. The railroad
tracks shown on DeLorme page 48 are gone but the roadbed is still evident. The hamlets of Barges and
Troutman shown the maps are not at all apparent. At 9.7 miles turn left onto a dirt road and continue for
about one mile-a topo map would be helpful. Up to the right in the pine forest is a large, flat area shown
as the highpoint. The flatness of the area and the thick underbrush preclude precise identification of the
highest area. Maybe the undergrowth is less intrusive in the winter.
