Fairfax City Highpoint Trip Report

The furniture store has been renamed to Haverty's but then again there was once a Toys-R-Us in the same place. There is construction going on at the store so direct access from Lee Highway is not possible. Otherwise, this one is not difficult.

From I-66, go east on US 50 toward Fairfax. At the second light, turn right onto Jermantown Road. Cross Lee Highway. Then things get a shade hairy to describe. On the right side of the Food Lion is Rust Avenue. You have to ziggy through the intersection to get to it. Take Rust to a left onto Westmore and the first left onto Williams Place. At the end of the cul-de-sac, the water tower will be obvious straight ahead. The HP is behind the tower. I presumed that there was a city right of way someplace there and, since it was fairly early in the morning, I just walked up and back.
