1 area 1/4 mile south of Parsonburg (90-94 ft)

Head west on MD 346 in Parsonburg and turn left (SW) at the Jerusalem Methodist Church onto unsigned Forest Grove Road. Enter the parking lot immediately on the left past the church. Highest ground is in the cemetery near the Smith and Wimbrow grave sites.

1 area 800 ft NNE of Dagsboro and Parsonburg-Melson Roads (90-94 ft)

From MD 346 in Parsonburg, go 1.9 miles north on Parsonburg-Melson Road to its junction with Dagsboro Road. The knoll is a short stroll from the roadside, a few hundred feet north of the junction. The knoll appears to have been cleared recently, with logs and brush still piled up, and seems ready for development. About 200 feet north of the highest ground, look for a lone Civil War headstone for a Maryland infantryman.

1 manmade area at SE corner of Hebron 7.5 minute quadrangle (100-104 ft)

Don't waste a visit on this area. I have an older edition of the Hebron 7.5' quad that shows the area as totally flat, so the area is definitely manmade.
