Schoolcraft County Highpoint Trip Report
unnamed (1,060+ ft)

I followed Bob Schwab's good trip report for this CoHP. If you're driving from
the south on MI 77, take the gravel road that goes off to the right at about 9
miles and continue straight when you get to the 4-way intersection a mile or so
up this road. If you're following Bob's directions from the north, you'll need
to make a left at the above-mentioned intersection. From there follow Bob's
directions and, for Schoolcraft County, stay right at the fork he mentions.
I drove a little further than Bob did, to the second road crest.
Here I bushwhacked north into the woods. After ascending a relatively short
distance, the ridge turned toward the east and I continued until I topped out on
a low hill. There was a shallow ravine separating this point from the higher
ground to the north. I think this is the small 1,060-foot contour shown on my
Topozone printout as touching the county line just southwest of the "1" in spot
elevation 1048. It would be helpful if someone (Andy Martin? David Olson?) were
to check this out on a real map, because Andy's book just has the elevation as 1,050+ ft.
It would also be helpful to take a GPS unit to this point.
