Sterling County Highpoint Trip Report

Date: January 4, 2005
Author: Bob Packard

I tried to make the Surgent-Martin approach work but ran into key locked gates so I approached from the southeast.

Coming out from the McDonald Road they mention I drove southeast on US 87 reaching the Glasscock- Sterling Line (1.3 miles), picnic area (4 miles), unmarked road to the left or north at 4.9 miles. Turned in there and after several right angle turns and 4.5 miles, parked near a corral at (32° 59.935' N, 101° 12.774' W).

Hiked northwest to the summit area meeting the description given by Scott Surgent. GPS checked. 5 miles round trip hike.
