Lee County Highpoint Trip Report

The directions listed on the CoHP site are completely accurate. Stay on the main jeep road at the 2 turns. The only scenery I could see was the strip job south of the HP.

A few observations: the pipeline noted at the 2nd turn is a methane line. These are ALL over the area, carrying methane from all the mines. I scared a bear about midway up, saw a baby raccoon near the turn around. Be careful, the parking lot is a LONG way from the law; however 160 gets a fair amount of traffic between Powell Valley and Harlan. Don't leave any valuables in sight.
