List Description

This list does not include 4 National Wilderness Areas in the south-central USA that are in swampy or very low lying terrain. These areas are subject to flooding, storm surges, or other events that can modify the flat terrain. Even without those factors, locating and visiting a single highest land point in these wet and thickly vegetated areas is likely not really possible in a truly objective sense.

The Wilderness Areas not represented by high points on this list are:

  • Big Lake in Arkansas
  • Breton and Lacassine in Louisiana
  • Gulf Islands in Mississippi
