Ascent Trip ReportIt is rare that I visit unnamed county highpoints, but I recently decided to work on Colorado county highpoints and, of course, not all of them are 14teeners, have names or are even actual summits! My son, Marshall, and I visited two candidates for Lincoln County, but it seems the highpoint candidate to the northeast, mentioned in Covill and Mitchler's book, Hiking Colorado's Summits, has been eliminated as one of the county highpoint candidates. This particular spot seemed to be more of a highpoint, however, since the south side of the road was elevated and the Lincoln County highpoint location mentioned on Peakbagger is simply a flat spot in the middle of an unpaved road. Anyway, both spots are very easy to reach, located close to each other and you will not have to hike farther than a few feet at each location.
