Aiken County High Point Trip Report

All of the hp spots lie near US 1 in a five mile stretch near Monetta. Several roads that link US 1 and SC 23 (crossing the railroad tracks and entering Saluda County) are SC 39 (on quad), Holston going due north alongside one of the hp areas, Bethel Road (ends at Bethel Church), and Peach Orchard Road (which is not paved in spite of topo, and winds through the peach orchards on both hps in that area).

Of the 11 areas, two are really the same (split by quads) and I found the four southern areas to be completely flat.
