Ascent Trip ReportFor the northeast coHP area, at the High School, the HP is at the far baseball field and the adjoining soccer field further from the high school. Adam Helman's coHP map coordinates are about 100 ft. from the large 'Highlanders Country' sign towards First Base.
For the southwest coHP area, at the water tank, go to the loop end of the access road. You will see a high candidate area southwest of the water tank, topped by a small crown of rocks. Go the same distance further in the same direction and you will find two toppled trees, with raised root balls. Adam Helman's coHP map coordinates are here at the trees.
There is a 'heap' northeast of the watertank, inside the fence, that might be as high. I am presuming that it is a scrape heap from clearing ground for the water tank, many years ago since sizeable trees are growing from it.
