Ascent Trip Report

Located at the southeast corner of the County, just north of the Huron-Bruce County Road, short easy hike 1.8km RT.

We parked in the driveway and asked for permission at the house. The friendly lady who answered the door, with a real cute Schitzu dog, was the mother of the owner, who apparently was sick in bed .... after checking with him she gave us permission to visit the High Point. She told me "Follow the road that takes you back there (pointing the way), at the top there is a round marker on the ground just to the right".
I thanked the nice lady and told her that my wife, Rose, would wait in the car parked in her driveway. "Oh that's fine, unfortunately I can't invite her to come in."

From the driveway I walked to the right side of the barn/silo where there are 2 grass tracks that head north to the summit. The track to the right heads for the eastside of the summit before looping west to the summit. The track to the left (around/behind the silo) heads directly north (800m) to the obvious summit, the actual High Point is 3-4m to the right .... I stomped around the tall grass looking for the ground marker with no luck. I did a loop hike.

From the stop light in Harrison drive northwest on hwy #9 (going thru Clifford) for 13.4km to a left turn (west) on Huron-Bruce Road. Drive 5km to the first Farm House on the right, numbered #632 (stone house, blue garage and an old barn with a silo). This is the TH .... the High Point is 800m due north of here, this is private property and permission is reqired.
