Ascent Trip ReportAs far as I can determine, Diamond Hill is the 4th highest named highpoint in Indiana. My son, Marshall, and I tried to get permission to access this property from a farm located north of the highpoint, but no one was home. No one was home at the residence south of the highpoint either. The road to the communication tower on the SW side of Diamond Hill was gated, but it was not posted and there was no fence. We decided to park in front of the gate and make a dash for the summit. It was less than .25 miles to the summit with half of that distance followed the communication tower's access road and the rest was a mild cross country bushwhack. I feel sure Diamond Hill's summit is located on the property of the farm to the north, since we did have to cross one deteriorating fence row, so future peakbaggers should attempt to obtain permission there. The summit provided no views due to the trees.
