Barton County High Point Trip Report

This is an easy one; both are spots on the road.

Reach them from Lamar MO and I-71 by going east on US 160 4 miles to T road, then curve south on T for 4 miles, then east on U for 3 miles, curving south on U for 1 mile. Here the road jogs back east, but take a small lane due west for 0.2 mile to a water tower. This high spot is right on the road, perhaps a few feet off to one side or the other.

Proceed back to the intersection with U, then go 0.5 mile east on U to a rise, opposite a house. Pull in on the north side of the road at the house. Level back, and you will see that the 1st spot looks to be deal even with this one. There is good visibility back to the 1st spot. Visit both.
