Ascent Trip Report

Henderson count has four contours at 700+ feet. Three are not very far off I-40 in the Natchez Trace State Park and the other is in the far south of the county.
Northern 3 contours
These three points are easy to reach right off the road in the state park.
Take exit 116 for TN-114 and go south on Camden Rd/TN-114 for 2.9 miles to the first two spots near the intersection with Taylor Trail. There is one on each side of the road.
The other spot is a little further down the road on the left.
Further down the road is a fire tower but it is inaccessible due to missing steps.
Also note, the Carroll county highpoints are north of the same interstate exit and only a few miles away and easily reached.
Southern Contour
This contour is not far from the Chester county HP (Sand Mountain)
It is north off TN Hwy 100 about 12 miles east of Henderson on a dirt road called McEarl Ln/Tennessee Valley Divide. The road is rather rugged and if high clearance is needed if you intend to drive it but it’s only about a mile walk north from the highway.
