New Hanover County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: May 17, 2007
The southern area appears to have been quarried away but this area should be
visited by someone with a GPS unit to be absolutely sure of this. The northern
area has been developed and it is possible that there is now no area in New
Hanover County that rises to the exalted altitude of 75 feet. We stood on the
highest ground we found, which was between the sidewalk and the fence of the
house near the corner of Addie Road and Waverly.
Take I40 into Wilmington, road becomes 132 continue south. Turn left onto
Shipyard Road for a couple miles, then turn left onto 17th street. At 0.2 mile
turn right onto Delaney, at 0.5 mile turn right onto Druid Road, then right onto
Tattersall which is not on the topo. Take the next left onto Addie Road which
seem to cut right through 75-foot contour.
