Marshall County High Point Trip Report
Date: March 11, 2000
From Lewisburg, drive southeast on Highway 431 about 1 mile and turn right onto Industrial Park Drive,
across the highway from a golf course. Drive south about 0.8 mile, then turn left onto Old Belfast Road.
Go 1 mile and turn right onto Snake Creek Road. Drive south and bear left at the fork with Stammer
Road at 1.2 miles. From the fork go about 0.3 mile to a chert road on the left and park. Hike up the chert
road about 200 feet, and take a horse trail uphill to the left, up a steep creek bed. Pass Blowing Cave after
about 1000 feet, then hike another 150 feet to a 'gate' through a fence to a large field. Hike northeast
along the fence to the left, then down to the left (north) to a saddle and back up along a farm road/horse
trail. Continue along this ridge for about 0.5 mile to the first area, just beyond a fence. This point is on a
wooded knoll. Another horse trail is at the top.
To get to the second area, hike northeast along a horse trail down to a saddle and back up to a ridge. The
opposite side of the ridge is posted 'NO TRESPASSING,' but not the horse. Follow the horse trail east for
about 1000 feet to the second point, where the trail turns right and heads south. Again the area just past
the trail is posted. This area is also wooded.
Using my watch altimeter, this area was 20 feet higher than the first area, but I didn't go to the top of the
first area on the return trip, so I didn't get to double check it. This is not highly accurate, but a 20 foot
difference when it reads to the nearest 10 feet is somewhat significant.
