Calhoun County High Point Trip Report
Date: January 8, 2000
I approached this from the west side. Driving around three sides of the area led me
to believe that this would be the most efficient approach and the easiest to keep track
of where you were on the map.
For a slightly easier approach, continue south from
the small drainage for a couple of hundred feet or so to where a dirt track goes
into the woods on the left (east) side. This track can be driven but it deteriorates
and there is no good place for a passenger car to turn around.
But it's easy walking as it goes almost due northeast and drops into the drainage.
From here it's a bushwhack, but not a difficult one, as you climb out of the drainage
roughly following the boundary between the deciduous woods on your right and the planted
pine woods on your left. I found that after running into the dirt road, the left fork
led me to what I thought was the highest ground, though I explored up both forks.
I would add that the gun shots I kept hearing off to my right added neither to the
serenity of the morning nor to my peace of mind.
