Andy Hatzos researched alternate D.C. Highpoint candidates versus Point Reno at his website Great Zo. He came up with this one, at about the same elevation to the commonly accepted Point Reno which is at 410'. Gently rising open area near parking lots, amongst mature trees. Two other areas he notes close by to the N are by observation several feet lower.
