Talbot County High Point Trip Report
Date: March 12, 2001
From Easton, take route 331 East to Dover Neck Road. Turn right
(south) onto Dover Neck Road and
proceed for 1.4 miles to Barkers Landing Road. Turn left, heading
east. Go east on Barkers Landing Road
0.2 mile to a rise in the road, opposite the entrance to the old
landfill (there is a new landfill farther east). Park
here and walk south into the woods to a small knob, adjacent to the old
railroad grade shown on the topo map.
At first, I thought the area might be man-made but closer inspection of
the knob and surrounding terrain shows
it to be natural, although the railroad cut exaggerates the knob.
Across the road, to the north, there is a
significantly higher, man-made highpoint in the landfill. It was
unpleasant to be downwind.
