|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
|Peak:||Ohio County High Point|
| Elevation:||920 ft / 280 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFrom the Switzerland County hp I headed north on Ohio 129 about 0.7 mi. to a right on Pleasant Grove Rd., left on Aaron Rd., left on Knigga Rd. to an unsigned dirt road along a fence on the county line where the high spot is by a fence post on the right side of the road a few yards up from the intersection. I noticed what looked like higher ground in the field on the south side of this road and back farther west and south and explored these areas, not understanding when I was there that the county line runs along the dirt road and these higher spots are in Switzerland County. A query on the County High Pointers discussion board set me straight. So, while I spent 20 minutes or so walking neighboring fields, it's really a pure drive up.
