Lawrence County High Point Trip Report

Date: June 3, 2001
Author: Jon Mann

This small area is in the Red Hills State Park, and is accessible sunrise to sunset.

From the junction of US 50 and IL 1, just north of Lawrenceville (which has it's own refinery) turn west on US 50 for approximately 8 miles. Turn at sign for Red Hills State Park - North Area. Follow road 6/10 mile to first paved right. Follow road north 3/10 mile (approx.) to crest. There is a very strange looking small square limestone building, topped with a glass chapel.

The benchmark can be found next to a light pole next to the road in front of the chapel. The highest area appears to be on the road itself.
