Moultrie County High Point Trip Report

Take Illinois 16 west of Shelbyville until you get to the small town of Gays, which is known for having one of America's last remaining two story outhouses - no, I didn't take the tour. Past Gays, make a right on 1800E, which is the Coles/Moultire county line. Travel about 1 mile south, passing a few houses on the right until you get to an old fence line on the right.

Take the fence line maybe 100 yards to the high contour, which is not particularly obvious in the field. I stomped around quite a bit. The house shown on the topo on front of the high area is no longer there, replaced by a pile of gravel, which is probably the man-made highpoint of the county.
