Mecklenburg County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: April 11, 2005
The western spot, the one with a 606-foot spot elevation, is now in the middle
of an active logging operation. The area around the CoHP is being clear cut.
The road (SR 741, Twin Road) leading to the site has been rutted somewhat by
logging trucks and equipment and is rough in spots but I could actually drive a
bit closer to the CoHP than previously. If you visit any time soon, don't block
the logger's roads when you park. Reaching the highpoint now involves a bit of
scrambling over logging slash and, unless this particular group of loggers
cleans up after themselves better than most, it will in the near future.
The actual highpoint itself is not covered with too much debris.
The other two Mecklenburg County spots were as described in Don Desrosier's trip
report, though the mileages as measured from US 360 read slightly less on my
car's odometer. The well near the point north of VA 47 brought back memories of
a couple of cave entrances in KY and IN.
