Currituck County High Point Trip Report

Date: January 4, 1999

On Jan 4 I did the second of two Currituck Co. (NC) HPs. Actually, I'm not all that sure I did it, but I'm claiming it anyway. It goes like this: as far as I can tell from comparing the topo map with the situation on the ground, Three Dunes has been bulldozed to make way for a golf course.

Progress! I did ascend all the highest dunes in the area, but none seemed to approach 65 feet elevation. And they probably won't last long either: much of the area has been staked out with surveyor's stakes and ribbon and there are bulldozers and graders in the area. Development seems imminent. Under these circumstances, I would credit anyone who climbed Luark Hill, about 2.5 miles north of the end of the paved road, with doing Currituck. It will be interesting to see what the next edition of the Mossey Islands quad shows.
