Richland County High Point Trip Report

This single area is a moderately sized 600-foot contour in a farm field.

Directions: From Lawrenceville, take US 50 west 12 miles to the Richland county line. Might want to visit Lawrence COHP at Red Hills State Park, which is along this route. From the county line, continue west 4 miles to Primrose Road. Make a right (north). Head north, pass Seven Hills Lane, the road will turn to gravel. Pass Pleasant Ridge Road (1250N) - look for a sign which says "Whippoorwill Hill" on your left(west).

Approach: I approached from the west. Drive north on Primrose Rd. past the sign and park at the wooded area to the right (east). Unless you have an affinity for thorn bushes, walk on the south edge of the forested area to the high contour, which is in a cornfield. There was a small pile of brush, and some old burned logs in the middle of the high area which seemed to be the highest spot. Couldn't locate the 601 BM shown on the topo; it may have at one time existed at the dirt pile or slightly to the east in a field.
