Winnebago County High Point Trip Report

This long highpoint starts roughly at the Stephenson-Winnebago-Green (WI) tri-county point. Good roads mark the boundaries.

Take IL 70 to the Wisconsin line, turn west on State Line Road. Follow this road approximately 3 1/2 miles. If you come to Hartman Road, you have gone too far. The access point is the farmhouse on State Line Road just east of Hartman Road. We knocked at the door, but no one answered.

We set off across the harvested corn field, traversing the majority of the contour (to the fence-line by the wooded area - everything east of there is lower). The two highest areas were near the house, and near the wooded area. I was not able to tell which was higher.
