Hamilton County High Point Trip Report
Date: December 16, 2001
I had tried this one in September, but I had an outdated list of five areas in the southeast corner of the county.
The latest revision has "1 small area 630+ - 3-5S-5E". Finding this area was a LOT easier than
finding the previous five.
Take IL 14 east from Benton, pass into Hamilton county. Make a left (north) at 300E, Go ~ 3 miles north,
then make a right (east) at 1400N. Go a half mile to 350E, which is not shown on the topo but is shown on Delorme.
The road was difficult in spots due to the heavy rain but should be no problem for a 4WD. Near
the end of the road are a bunch of trailers on the right; it didn't appear that anyone was living in these.
The area was heavily posted.
I parked here and walked a short distance north to the high area, which is a grassy field surrounded by
sparse forest. With a good vehicle you could probably drive the rest of the way to the top. I Lobdellized
the area, unsuccessfully looked for the Davis BM, and left.
