Beaufort County High Point Trip Report

Date: August 5, 2003
Author: Chip Clark

Andy's book lists this as three points, but it is actually one irregular area spanning two quads, with a discontinuity due to a change from English to metric contours.

To get there, proceed up Route 17 from New Bern, to the junction with Route 102. The southern part of the blob appeared higher, and the highest points there seemed to be either on the shoulder of the road (around point 35° 25' 34" N, 77° 7' 33" W) or near the electrical box closer to route 17. A little wandering is in order.

Webmaster's comment: The author has not specified the datum for his coordinates. Depending upon what guess the reader makes for the implied datum, an error of up to two hundred meters is possible.
