Greene County High Point Trip Report
Date: April 16, 2002
I parked at the fire road south of Hazeltop and followed the AT. I used Topozone and Topo USA to get
coordinates for the tri-county intersection (I realize this was not an exact science) and I used my GPS to get
me to those coordinates. The GPS claimed an accuracy of 17 feet. The accuracy of my coordinates I used
was perhaps 50 - 100 feet. So, I was in the neighborhood. I thrashed through the brush for some time to
see if there was some kind of witness marker but found none. While thrashing, I stepped on every outcrop
or significant rise. All I can say is that I gave it a great effort. I built a small cairn in memorial of my effort
on top of a big rock very near the coordinates (38.4754° N, 78.4530° W).
It's hard to guess at what may have inspired such an arbitrary location for a county line.
