Ascent Trip Report

A short hike on a dirt road/bushwack ...... .75 miles, 40 minutes RT.

Located at the northeast corner of the County, I used Fred dale's TR of 2000 in my source of information.

We drove west on Alabama CR70 (Tanner Williams Road) passing through the village of Tanner Williams to the State Line Road (AL/MS), turned right and continued north on the paved State Line Road .68 miles to a left turn on Bertis White Road which led west 400 yards to a private house. The lady didn't want to give me permission, saying come back later. I thanked her and drove back to State Line to the dirt road talked about in Dale's TR (50 yards south).

I parked on State Line and walked west 600 yds on the dirt road then bushwacked north 150 yds to the Highpoint area, I chose one at 30.7200, 88.4190.
I didn't go to the other 2 candidates in this area or to the 2 candidates located at the northwest corner.
From here we drove to Mobile, I65, exit3 and overnighted at a Hotel.
