Dawes County High Point Trip Report

Date: October 26, 2001

See John Mitchler's report. I took his advice and approached from the south to avoid rough roads, which worked out well.

Mileage: From NE 2/71 at the Dawes - Box Butte County line, go west on River Road 4.6 miles and turn right (north) on Diehl Road. At 10.4 miles go left (west) on West Belmont Road. At 12.5 miles go right (north) on an unmarked road toward radio towers. Reach the towers at 13.4 miles. I walked all the areas and agree with John that the highest point is on the hill with the telephone pole. As of January 2002, this area is not available on Topozone at 1:25000 scale.
