Ascent Trip ReportFrom Naples we drove south on 41 to a right (south) on 951 to Marco Island, driving over the "Judge S S Jolley Bridge" for an impressive entry to the Island.
At the first main intersection (stop light) after the bridge turn left on Barfield Drive and travel 3.3 miles to a left on Watson Road, at .3 miles make a right on Scott Drive followed by a left on Indian Hill at .25 miles. Go 150 yards to the top of the ridge and find a place to park.
The highpoint is to the right at 30 yards in a wooded lot, amid some old foundations, my GPS read 25.91308, 81.69438. This is an open lot that will probably be built on in the near future, its posted "Private", with the Real Estate Sign, Frank Schultz tel. 239 821 3839.
"NEWS ALERT" to highpointers ..... either purchase the lot or get there ASAP before the erection of a house !!!!.
