This may be the 4th highest "named" summit point in Iowa. The "summit" is not definite with a single high point, but it is possible to easily walk the length of the Granger Hill ridgeline and feel comfortable that you were on the highest spot sometime during your hike. Granger Hill is located on private property, but there were no posted signs in 2011. We were unable to contact the landowner for permission, so we just jumped the fence and made a quick ascent with no problems. There are few views from the "summit" due to forest vegetation.
