Acknowledgments

Sources that were used to help me compile this list include:

  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; list compiled 1997 by Andy Martin, David Olson, and John Mitchler.
  • Some latitude-longitude values for peaks and sub-areas provided by John Hasch via the CoHP.org web site, and manually verified. I manually located the 62 points for Calhoun County.
