Ascent Trip Report

The "indefinite boundary" on the quad between Columbia and McDuffie counties has vexed COHPers, because it was unclear if the 600 contour is indeed in Columbia County. In anticipation of an upcoming trip, I checked both counties' GIS tax maps and verified that the county line follows Ga Hwy 150/Cobbham Road through Cobbham's Crossroads, with Columbia on the east side and McDuffie on the west. Even better, the Columbia GIS map has 2-foot contours and shows a 604-foot crest just east of the highway shoulder, centered at N 33.55082 W 82.43674. GPS address is 4200 Cobbham Road, Thomson GA. So previous COHPers are vindicated. No need to worry about the 590 contours.
