Jackson County Highpoint Trip Report

Garnes Knob (1,225 feet)

Mike Schwartz's report is still good. There are two gates, almost at the road crest, that lead into the pasture containing the first knob, which sports a large tank on top but which is 50 or 60 feet lower than Garnes Knob. The eastern gate was directly across the highway from a house. I used the western gate.

The topographic map shows a pipeline passing directly over the first knob and a few feet west of the BM on Garnes Knob. I walked the farm road which contoured around the first knob, then climbed up the cleared pipeline swath to the summit of Garnes Knob.

Benchmark "Garnes 2" was a few feet east among some trees and set into a low concrete post.
