Columbiana County Highpoint Trip Report

Here is one county where I would not have even considered the way Hans Haustein and Mike Schwartz did it. To me the obvious way is to park north of Round Knob at the power line right-of-way, on Hammond School Road.

I simply walked up the right-of-way to its crest (if you are careful you can avoid brush and blackberry bushes entirely); and turned sharply right (west) onto a path which took me to the hp in about 50 feet and the BM (with an elevation of 1447) in about another 70 feet.

There are two fences to cross in the right-of-way, so there might be private land IN the right-of-way, but I had no problem of any kind.
