Calhoun County High Point Trip Report

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.
