From the intersection of State Highways 407 and 411 in McCool, Mississippi go south on Highway 411 just past the McCool Baptist Church. Continue 2.9 miles to the intersection with County Road 5233 (paved) and turn left and then continue 1.2 miles to the intersection with County Road 5008 (dirt) and turn left again. Continue on CR 5008 for 1.3 miles to an intersection stay right and continue for 0.8 mile to a turn out along a power line cut on the west (right) side of the road and park here.

The highpoint is 0.64 mile straight line distance from the turn out. The route is unposted at the road but crosses several postings on the way to the summit. I used a GPS to pick my way southwest through mostly open woods until reaching some logging roads which took me to the summit. The summit area is a grass and clover feed plot used for hunting.
