Stanton County Highpoint Trip Report

Date: December 26, 1996
Author: David Olson

These are southeast of Hoskins. Go two miles east of Hoskins on state highway 35, then one mile south. For the first time on this trip, I had snow difficulties in getting to the county HP. The northern of the three 1,860+ foot corn-field HPs was unpleasant in the snow.

From there I wanted to drive the unimproved road south that comes closest to the other two HP areas. That road is permanently closed. I chose to hike rather than drive other roads "around the block". It was a harsh two-thirds mile hike through substantial snow and I tore my jeans on one barbed wire fence.
