Ascent Trip Report

A short bushwack in open woods from the side of a road ...... 100 yards, 10 minute RT.

Located at the northwest corner of the County, I included Bill Jacobs TR of 1999 in my source of information.

We found our way to Citronelle and traveled west/southwest on CR96 (State Street) for 1.8 miles to Rousset Street on the right. We parked at the corner on Rousset Street.
I hopped over the fence and walked north 50 yards, in fairly open woods, to the summit of the obvious bump. There are 2 spots within 20 feet vieing for the Highpoint, I chose the one at 31.08614, 88.26897.
Cows grazing in the field to the northwest could be seen through the trees, the reason why I didn't use Jacob's roue to the summit.
From here we drove south to the Jackson County Highpoint in Mississippi.
