Cook County High Point Trip Report

From Route 62 east of Carpentersville take Helm Road to the west to the intersection of Roundstone Lane. Turn left (south) onto Roundstone and proceed to the end. This is a new road with lots which are for sale or already sold so it's a matter of time before access is restricted by this route. Near the end of Roundstone Lane a jeep road goes off to the right (roughly west, then south). I was able to follow this in a 2WD high- clearance vehicle for 0.2 mile under the power line. There is a knob to the left (east) which is the highpoint. It seemed like a good place for a benchmark as it is reasonably prominent in this flat terrain, but none is noted on the map nor could I find one.
