Meigs County High Point Trip Report

Date: May 2002
Author: Kevin Williamson

I am using Ken Oeser's directions, but am bringing into this report for ease for the user.

From Decatur, drive east on Highway 30 about 0.5 mile and turn left onto Legg Hollow Road, follow this about 2 miles to an intersection with No Pone Valley Road. Turn left and go just over a mile to a church and turn right just past the church. This road passes a sharp left fork after 0.2 mile, and curves left at a split after another about 0.4 mile continue on this road on the northeast side of the mountain for about 0.5 mile. Turn right on road, then immediately turn right again on Firetower Road. Take the road past the "No Trespassing" signs (which apply only to the property around the trailer, not to the road itself) up the well-maintained gravel road to the summit. The highest ground is around the fire tower, next to some trees. The benchmark is on the opposite side of the fire tower as the highpoint.
