1 contour in a farm field just north of the Crawford County line

I was attending a weekend retreat in Ohio south of Cleveland, so I took this day off of work to do some county hiking. I had identified 12-13 possible counties to visit, so I set out to see how many my day could accomplish. First on the list was Seneca County.

I used Bob Schwab’s trip report, but my approach was a bit different. Coming from Fort Wayne, I used the US 30 junction with Ohio 53 / Ohio 67 just north of Upper Sandusky as the zero point:

0.0 – Drive north on Ohio 53 / Ohio 67
0.4 – Turn right (east) on Ohio 67
8.6 – Turn right (east) on Ohio 103 in the village of Sycamore, OH
11.1 – Continue straight (east) on Ohio 103 as Ohio 231 goes right (south)
14.5 – Continue straight (east)
17.1 – Turn left (north) on Ohio 19
17.5 – Enter the settlement of Lykens, OH
20.0 – Turn right (east) on the Crawford – Seneca County Line Road – also known as Crawford CR 14 and Seneca CR 58
24.0 – Turn left (north) onto TR 79, a gravel/dirt road
24.3 – Stop about 0.1mi from the crest and highpoint ahead

On a clean day, I could have taken the road all the way to the crest. However, today’s road had ice and snow, so I stopped where I felt confident I could turn around.

This is an easy highpoint in a farm field just east of the crest in the road. Wander around a bit until you are satisfied that you have stepped on the highest ground.

Based on the Schwab report, I did not hike the quarry tailing pile site.
