Grundy County High Point Trip Report
Date: October 18, 2000
From the intersection of Routes 47 and 52, proceed west on 52 to County Line Road on the LaSalle
County line. Proceed south to White Willow Road then another 0.5 mile to the tri-corner point where
Kendall, Grundy, and LaSalle counties meet.
From here, I walked south along County Line Road to make sure I got the highpoint in that direction.
Then I returned to the tri-point and walked east along the fence line to make sure I got the highpoint in
that direction. Approximately 3/4 mile to the east of the tri-point is a round knoll in the middle of the
corn field that appears to be the highest point of the group.
Doing this highpoint before corn harvest would be a challenge as the visibility would be much lower. In
addition, it was easier walking the fence line in the corn stubble than in the tall grass along the fence.
