Dane County High Point Trip Report

Date: July 2001
Author: Jon Mann

From the town of Mt Horeb, I turned on county road ID (old highway 18/151 - the new 18/151 is not on the topo), then followed the signs to Cave of the Mounds and Bingham Park. After touring the Cave (1 hour, $12), I continued on to Bingham County Park. The high area is a very broad, very flat area. I parked in the back of the campground (one could park at the playground as well), and wandered the grassy area, and took the mowed trails through the meadow. The highest area to me seemed to be near a clump of trees in the middle of the meadow.

Trip Statistics: 20 min duration (lots of wandering to do), less than 10 ft gain,
                      (1/4)+ mile (depending on how much you want to wander!)
