The north-south Albany/Carbon county line passes just west of the summit of Medicine Bow peak, so the highest point in Carbon County is this spot, where the line intersects the crest of the ridge. Reaching this point is easy from the summit of Medicine Bow--just rock-hop along the gentle, open ridge for 1/3 of a mile to the west. A GPS can help you find the exact spot.
