Henderson County High Point Trip Report

After leaving the post at the highpoint of Warren County, continue west on 10 Ave. In 1/4 mile the pavement gives way to gravel at 40th Street. Continue west on 10th. After one mile, at 30th Street, the gravel switches back to blacktop. After the next mile there is a left-hand curve traffic sign - continue west. At 3.8 miles from the post you'll pass a wind generator on the right (north) side of the road. At 4.3 miles you reach the (unsigned) county line. There are white posts with orange tops indicating a telephone corridor running north-south along the county line. The east-west street is signed 1st/10th Avenue. Drive an additional 1/2 mile west on 10th Avenue and park in the field road on the north side of the road.

Walk approximately 1/2 mile north along the tree row (dividing the fields into half-sections). The HP is slightly shy of 1/2 mile I think - we wove in and out of the trees to cover the HP.

We saw a redtail hawk hunting while walking back to the car. About 10 min each way.
