Calhoun County Highpoint Trip Report

Calhoun County's three high point areas are located in Section 3 of Butler Township.
I visited there on the morning of May 4, 2005. After visiting all 3 areas,
I could not tell which one was highest.
From the intersection of 630th St. and 190th Ave (C.R. N41),
1 mile south of State Highway 7, I drove south on N41 for 1.4 miles.
I turned left onto C.R. D11, and drove east for 0.55 mile,
where I parked in an approach east of the road crest,
near the red dashed line in the center of the section.
I crossed through a gate, and walked through a chopped corn field
to the southern area in less than 3 minutes.
I began walking straight north between the corn rows to the northern area.
I crossed the property line in 7 minutes, and walked through scrub grass
to area 2--2 more minutes.
I returned to the property line and turned west on a field road
which came near the western, and largest, area.
I arrived at area 3 in 5 minutes.
I returned to my car on the field road that follows the property line.
Total time for this county was about 23 minutes.
