On the topo, see the five-way intersection just south of Old Gun. From the large, curving major road, which
is Huegenot Road/VA 147, turn north onto Old Gun Road, about 0.3 mile northeast of St. Edwards School.
This is the middle of the three roads shown going to the five-way intersection from Huegenot Road. For the
closer area, go right at the five-way onto Duryea Road, pass Methodist and Mormon Churches, and turn left
onto the road shown on the topo in less than 0.2 mile. This semi-private access road leads to the houses
shown on the map, and was not posted. Take the right fork shown, which leads over the highest portion of
the closed contour. I thought the highest ground was near a large tree alongside the road, in the vicinity of
the largest brick house in the area.
For the second area, to the northwest, backtrack to the five-way intersection and go right onto Old Gun
Road, following the curves as shown on the topo. Turn right onto the dirt road shown as crossing Old Gun
Road just south of the 370-foot contour. This is really a driveway serving several houses and is marked by
mailbox #320. Circle around to the right and then left, back to Old Gun Road. Highest ground appears to
be alongside the driveway or on the lawn adjacent to a large white house nearest to the north junction of the
driveway with Old Gun Road.
