Ascent Trip Report

On the west side of Riceville Road at the northwest corner of the County .... 75 yards, 10 minute RT.

From the junction of Hwy 49/53 north of Gulfport we traveled west on 53 for 13.4 miles to a right (north) turn on Riceville Road, "River Run" sign on corner. We drove north 4.21 miles to a crest on the road and parked the car.
The Highpoint area is to the left (west) about 30-40 yards in a young pine grove with very dense undergrowth. I chose my spot at a GPS reading of 30.64498, 89.30520.

We drove back to 53 and continued west to Hancock County.
