Mecklenburg County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: August 28, 2004
From the intersection of US 360 and VA 47, go south on 47 for 6.2 miles and turn right onto
Twin Road (Route 741). Take this for 0.9 mile where the road makes a sharp turn to the left
and go for another 0.1 mile. Park near the old barns.
Go up the left side of the field (yard?) to the obvious HP. This seemed easier
than cutting across the field.
For the other two areas, go back to 47 and go south for 1.4 miles to Route 683 on the left just before the
power line. Park at the corner. Walk along the edge of the woods to the power line then left to the obvious
higher area. The old well is signed but not well (pun intended).
For the area spanning 47, I took the HP to be on the south side of 47. Specifically where is open to
interpretation but I suspect it is closer to 47 than farther away.
