Talbot County High Point Trip Report

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.
