From the intersection of state Highway 9 and CR S87A, just west of the town of Thurston, zero odometer.
0.0 Highway 9 and S87A - go north on Highway 9.
4.0 D Avenue, gravel - turn left (west).
5.0 15th Road - turn left (south).
5.3 Crest in the road.
High point #1 is alongside the road. A cement enclosed manhole cover stamped "Wagner Manufacturing Co."
is the highest thing in the area. Small areas, one at 0.2 mile southeast is #2 and one at
0.1 mile west-southwest is #3. Both looked lower. To get permission from the owner,
go to 341 15th Road just downhill from the high point. Return to D Avenue.
5.6 D Avenue - go straight ahead (north).
7.6 B Avenue at the county line - turn left (west).
