Ascent Trip ReportNow on public property and accessible all the time! Drive up from 130th st by route 60 north of Sibley, Iowa 2.9 miles south of the Minnesota state line.
Arrived around 9:10am and waited from rain to stop. Got to the high point and started taking pictures around 9:15am. Left around 10:00am.
Register said two people where here before me today getting their fourth high point each.
This could be a great high point to end on if all the challenging or rewarding views are already checked off your list. Signs point in the direction with mileage and elevation for all the other state high points. Would be a great way to reflect and look back. Or get inspired to do the rest!
There is a balcony that provides views of the flat beautiful country side.
My 14th state high point.
