Montgomery County High Point Trip Report

Date: December 27, 2001
Author: John Mitchler

I followed Tim Worth's directions, and offer the following observations.

Area 1 in section 36 - I parked on 19th, a quarter a mile east of Nokomis Road, 2.4 miles south of IL 16.

Area 2 in section 35 - The A-frame house which Tim mentions is not on the topo.

Areas 3 & 4 in section 16 - I found it easy to drive the lane to the cemetery just east of these two areas. From IL 16 south of Ohlman, take Ohlman Road south for 1.6 miles, turn left (east) on 22nd and go to 1.5 miles. Turn right (south) and go 0.5 mile to a barn on the right (west). The access road is on either side of the barn, and is a half mile of grassy two-track driving. The cemetery only has 3 or 4 graves. Follow the fence line west for a half mile to the HP areas.

Area 5 in section 2 - I totally agree with Tim about the rutted dirt road south of the HP area. This unmaintained lane will be a suck hole in wet season.

Combine Montgomery with a Christian County outing.
