Ascent Trip Report

Despite being classified as the "Greatest Elevation Differential in Iowa," you will not feel the Allamakee County highpoint deserves such a title. I was able to park my car just .1 mile from this highpoint on an access road to an un-posted communication tower. From here it was an easy hike to the highpoint in a cow pasture with no view. The only difficulty was one barbed wire fence that had to be crossed during the ascent. My entire visit only took 9 minutes.
