Not a particularly interesting HP. This one is a liner in ranching country.
From Condon, head east on SR 206. In a few miles, take the right fork on
Lonerock Road. This road heads out across rolling hills toward Lonerock.
At the point where it drops down into the canyon of Lonerock Creek, a dirt
road branches to the south (right).
We drove this road (not posted against trespassing at the time), passing
through a gate just off the pavement, to the vicinity of the county line.
We did it in an Accord, though I wouldn't recommend it unless you're used to
"off-roading it" in your car. A GPS and careful map and compass work were
helpful in determining where the county line was - it's not signed. The
other two possibilities listed in Andy Martin's "County High Points" can be
reached from here via a cross-country scramble. Sighting and back-sighting
with a level leads me to believe that the one with the road is in fact
highest; I estimate it between 4290' and 4295'.
