This is one of two candidate points to be the High Point of this public park. This is another Denver Mountain Park (DMP) the best I can tell as it has no trails, signs or official parking, but shows up on both Google Maps as public land, "Cub Creek Park" as well as on the USGS map. There is another candidate HP in the Southeast corner of the park but that is a geographic HP where the slope is up-going and there is a spot elevation on the USGS of 7592 in that corner. My GPS gave a reading of 7598 at the spot shown which is slightly higher and and actual hill with nearly minimum prominence of 100 feet, adjusting for GPS being above ground, use 7595. Without a survey, one can not prove which candidate is the true HP of this public park land, but it sure better to tag the one shown which is at least a peak like feature than try to stand on a geographic spot with no prominence.
