Tippah County High Point Trip Report

Date: May 8, 2003
Author: Bob Packard

Got to Concord Church (Jumpertown Quad), then south on CR 601 and east on CR 638 (south of Mount Hebron Church), then northeast on CR 639 to end of maintenance. Hiked ruts, then bushwhacked to top of Tippah #1, the north one, in woods, no view.

Next drove north 0.5 mile from Lebanon Church (Baldwyn Quad) to posted gate. Walked past a cabin and a little lake. ATV trails and some bushwhacking got me up Lebanon Mt, Prentiss #1, the south one, no view.

Next, parking across from a house about 1.5 miles northwest on the road from Lebanon Church, walked up ATV trails and did a short bushwhack to the hp of Union County.

Next from a spot on the road northwest of Mount Olive Church did Tippah #2 and Tippah #3, south of the road. Mostly cut area, good views.

Next from another spot on the same road did Tippah #4 and Tippah #5, the middle ones, north of the road. ATV trails, mostly cut, good views.

Next from a spot back down on the road toward Mount Olive Church did Prentiss #2, the north one.

I used GPS, compass and map heavily for all 8 of these and they all checked GPS-wise at the summits.

Grand Totals: 5.5 hours, 10 miles, 2050 feet of gain.
