Kingman County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: November 24, 2007
The sandy hill country of south central Kansas is the venue for this fair rise
along a fence. Find a way to get to Nashville KS, either by going south from US
54 or east from US 281. From Nashville, go north on KS 42 for 2 miles and then
west for 2 miles. This is the west edge of Kingman County. Turn left (south)
on SW 190 Avenue and go 0.9 mile. This road curves to the right (west) but you
go straight (south) for another tenth of a mile (or walk it if you donít like
the looks of this lane). The lane can be driven until it ends in a wall of fir.
Go to the right and follow the fence south as the land descends and the rises to
the obvious highpoint. The soil is sandy, the relief is significant, and the
footpath along the fence helps you through the vegetation. It may be wise to
ask for permission at this unposted but out-of-the-way site.
