Crawford County High Point Trip Report
Date: June 3, 2001
This small high area is in, what else, a cornfield!
From the junction of IL 33 and IL 1, 2 miles east of Robinson (home of two kinds of black gold - an
enormous oil refinery, and a very large Hershey's chocolate factory - kind of makes you wonder if there is
some kind of connection). Turn south on IL 1, proceed for 5.5 miles to CR 450N. Turn right (west) on 450N
1.5 miles to 1250E. Turn north on 1250E 1/2 mile (turns to gravel) to 500N. Road curves here, going
east on 500 N is only way you can go.
High area is in cornfield to the right (south) of 500 N. I parked in the drive to a large blue water tower,
complete with smiley face. There are two mobile homes next to the tower, but it was dinner time, so I didn't
bother them - just hoofed it through the corn to the high ground.
