Will County High Point Trip Report

Date: October 18, 2000

From the Manhattan-Monee Road exit from I-57, proceed west to the Ridgeland Road, then left (south) to the height of land at the radio towers. There is a witness post on the side of the road where the benchmark should be. It appears that the benchmark was located where the road is today.

The candidates for the actual highpoint all appear to be to the east of Ridgeland Road and are probably just north of the eastern tower, the knoll in the Evergreen Pet Cemetery, or the high area in the corn field (again, difficult to see or find during growing season). The contour area is quite large but the highest areas are fairly obvious.
