Macon County High Point Trip Report

Date: July 2, 2001
Author: John Mitchler

We used Jon Mann's report. I measured 2.8 miles versus his 2.6 on Washington Road. The house number is 3740 (nobody was home). The topo map shows a "fenceline" extending south from the house. There is no fence, however, the line separates two fields; soybeans to the east and 7-foot corn to the west.

Expanded directions from the north: From I-74, south of Bloomington, go south on US51 for 29 miles to Maroa (south of Clinton). Then go 2.8 miles west on Washington Street (CR58 or 2600N), passing Oakland Rd, Janvirn Rd, and Bearsdale Rd before coming to a house on the right (north) and the HP on the left (south).

General Comment: This rise is located in flat central Illinois farmland. Enough said.
