County Highpoint - Wayne County, New York
Elevation 701 feet
Paul and Erica Erkkila have opened their land to geocachers and county highpointers. On August 7, 2003, after completing a geocache, Peak Experience #54 (GCGEGW), I continued uphill and stood at the county highpoint for Wayne County in New York State.
Reached the cohp by exiting at the New York State Thruway Exit 43. Proceeded north on Route 21 to the village of Palmyra. There took NY 31 to Route 21 North. Went over the Erie Canal and turned right onto North Creek Road. Driveway to Erkkila property 3755 North Creek Road is 0.8 miles east on the north side of the highway.
Returning from the cohp I stopped to chat with Paul who confirmed that I had reached the cohp.
Completed another geocache, Drumlin View (GCGH6T), on the Erkkila property. Just north of this geocache is a water tower and a cell tower. This vantage point provides a 4 mile panoramic view of the area.
As Gary Fallesen suggest in his book, Peak Experiences, if you are in Wayne County, you should visit nearby Chimney Bluffs State Park.
Thanks to the Erkkilas making their property available to visitors both geocachers and county highpointers can enjoy this county highpoint.
