Note: John's Mountain is a long steep ridge running north and south with many peaks along the ridge. This peak is the actual HP of the entire ridge although someone already names the County HP to the south "Johns Mountain" but that CHP peak is actually at a lower elevation thus, this peak is the true peak of the mountain. More importantly, this peak is in a state forest management area and has nice trails and parking lots and maintained trails to enjoy the hike to this summit. There is also a paved road to the summit and there is an observation deck at the top. The view off the west side of the mountain is very nice.

Finding the col of this is very difficult. It appears the next highest neighbor is Lookout Mountain to the west and NW. Dicks Ridge and Taylor Ridge are far lower to the west and same for Horn Mountain Ridge to the east. There are many rivers and creeks that appear to be the lowest "saddle" between the ridges such as Teloga Creek, Duck Creek, and chatooga River. It appears they are all in the 220 meter to 226 meter range so selct the 220 as the col in meters and convert.
