Ascent Trip Report

The roadside marker on Ebright Road is not exactly on the state HP and does not pretend to be. Instead, it says that the nearby benchmark is the highest surveyed BM in the state. But this is one of those cases where the BM is not on the highest ground--not even in the highest contour. Neither is the oft-photographed tower.

Follow Turf Drive into the mobile home neighborhood and you can distinguish remnants of the 450 contour on the left--as a slight rise on Sulky Road and Alpha Drive. Walk the streets and call it good. You'd have to trample flowers to properly grid it, and it's probably been graded anyway.

I visited at dawn and didn't have a chance to meet the HP hostess mentioned in other COHP reports.

My 103rd COHP and 12th SHP.
