The topo map shows a 2518 benchmark. There is a microwave tower on this spot just a few yards east of Sandy Ridge Trail. But the topo shows a 2520 line just at the west edge of the road. I walked the area. There was slightly higher ground west of the road. My GPS reading there was 18 feet higher than near the tower, so 2530 seems like a reasonable guess for elevation. The area is mostly flat but great views to the valley below just east of the tower. Col from LOJ.
