Chatham County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: January 28, 2006
Followed Fred Lobdell's trip report for Chatham. The report is still spot-on
for the northern area. The land is owned by a family across from the farm field
in a nice white house. I got permission; she was amused at my reason for being there.
Heard gunshots after entering the woods, so I utilized a pathetic blend
of jogging/bushwhacking to get to the summit. It is probably the most overgrown
area in the immediate woods.
Southern area is still accurate, although I think the contour with the relay
tower is higher. There’s no way to tell, though. The woods off of Fire Tower
Road are being developed (knock me over with a feather) but it doesn't look like
it will affect access in the immediate future.
If I would have received Brian Bockhahn's Randolph update a day earlier,
I would have gone for that as well.
