Follow Schwartz or Millsap directions to get to McCormick Road. This road rises for a while, then runs across a flat stretch. The high point is in this flat stretch. Just before the road starts to rise again, a gated gravel road signed as a bike path diverges left and there is a good place to park here. Walk back along the road and when it starts to descend you have crossed the high point. The ground is a bit higher on the southwest side but I thought this might be the remains of a gravel pile that had been dumped or bulldozed here during some construction operation.
