Ascent Trip Report

The highest point in Tillman County is a small granitic hill near the small town of Headrick. From highway OK-62, I followed an older road now used these days by joggers, bicyclists, and fishermen, who cast their lines from an old relic truss bridge that spans the Red River.

I parked near an old gate at a gravel pit, and shimmied under the fence. The hike went quick as I skirted the pit, gained the rocky "steps", and made the top after about 20 minutes in warm, sticky weather. Because I might have been on private land, I stuck around just long enough to swig some water before I started back down to my truck. No one bothered me.
