Orleans County Highpoint Trip Report

From Exit 48 on the New York State Thruway follow NY Route 98 north approximately 10 miles. Look for a small sign on the right identifying Root Road. Make a left here. Follow this road to Eagle Harbor Road and make a right turn. Shortly you will come upon Gray Road, follow it left. The Barre Sportsman's Club is on your left. This is where I parked.

Dan Case identified two sets of phone lines. The left leads into a corn field, the right leads into the gravel pit. Personally, the elevations of each seemed pretty close to each other. As the gravel pit continues to dig, the corn field and other nearby ground will soon become the highpoint of the county. This day, there was no one around to chase me out.
