Lafayette County High Point Trip Report
Date: May 27, 2002
From I-70 take exit 31 and drive south on route Z. There is a wide driveway 0.4 mile north of the junction
of routes Z and HH on the west side of the road which makes a good parking spot. From the end of this
driveway, walk 122 degrees southeast just 0.11 miles to the highest point in the middle of an unfenced
grassy field. My GPS landmark for this spot was (38° 55.34' N, 94° 03.44' W).
Just 50 yards east of this point is a higher, long, narrow mound running north-south, but it is obviously man-made.
The only other spot that looked higher was the northeastern arm of the 1080-foot contour. After
hiking to this point and sighting back with a crude hand level, I felt comfortable that the first point was higher.
