Sherman County High Point Trip Report

unnamed point (3,000+ ft)

Date: May 1999
Author: Ken Jones

In 1997, it was possible to drive (without passing "No Trespassing" signs) to within 100' of the "summit" from the north. However, the conditions have since deteriorated, and a gate is closed.

As of 1999, we took a route which parks by the county line sign on U.S. 97. Use a compass, and head east. You have a fence to cross at the edge of the highway right-of-way - it's not posted, and I think it's to keep livestock off the highway. With reasonable map-reading skills, you can find the roads and buildings (collapsed) shown in the highpoint vicinity, and step on the higher bumps around.

Note that we were tick-infested on our return to the car in May.
