Childress County Highpoint Trip Report

Date: March 21, 2006
Author: Bill Jacobs

The highpoint land owners live in the upscale Salt Creek Ranch south of US 256. The owners were not home but permission was given by a relative to access their lands on the north side of US 256.

The shortest route to the highpoint area is to take the dirt road directly across US 256 from the Salt Creek Ranch main gate. This road is not shown on the topo but closely follows the dashed red line on the topo. It eventually makes a short 90 degree left jog joining up with the road shown on the topo at the 2,600 foot contour.

The last area, after the road has taken up southeasterly heading, is probably the highest point.
