I visited this highpoint with my son Lance during a southern states road trip. Up until this point in time, the only other state highpoint he has done with me is Mt. Elbert, CO. We plan to do 4 more during the coming week.
Heading back to Wisconsin after a fun time down at a cabin at Grayton Beach SP. Had to make the short detour to climb our nations lowest state high point. Thrilling!
Lived 29 years in Florida, and finally bagged its highpoint 8 years after I moved away.
It was raining, but I got to the lowest highpoint with no problems! Glad to get that over with.
Suffered extreme altitude sickness but persevered to make the summit!
Took pictures with monument, peeked into the trail in the woods, used the bathroom, and left merrily.
It's nothing but it's something. Florida definitely gets credit for trying. At least they care, I'm looking at you Mississippi & South Carolina. I saw the "Highest snake in Florida" pulling into the parking lot too.
My daughter Vanessa and I visited Lakeland Park (Britton Hill) in 1988. We started our state highpoint quest in September of 1985, and I completed #49 state high points in June, 2009.
This is actually near my hometown. You can't even tell you're on an area of elevation. Nice way to spend an afternoon, though - the scenery on the drive is nice.
I stopped here on the way (really several hours out of the way) from DFW to Atlanta. A couple named Britton was leaving as I arrived, but said they were not related to the namesake. HP18
Tagged the summit w/ my wife in about 30 seconds from the car. The North Face would be proud. No oxygen needed.
While on vacation with the family, I convinced my son that there are mountains in Florida. After visiting the high point he was still unconvinced.
This marks my first official highpoint! Woo hoo!
I had a friend that grew up on the Miccosukee Indian Reservation in "The Glades", he use to say going to this part of Florida "goin to the mountains", its all a matter of perspective. Its nice they thought to make a nice park out of what most consider nothing. I bet a lot of florida residents use oxygen on the climb too.
This one was my first. Thirty Seconds from car to monument! Fastest approach ever
#9 OF 14 HIGHPOINTS ON A 5,500 MI LOOP FROM OHIO OVER 9 DAYS. FRANTICALLY DROVE AROUND LAKEWOOD LOOKING FOR THE PARK BEFORE IT WAS TOO DARK FOR PICTURES, AFTER DRIVING FROM DRISKELL MTN, LA THAT AM
Drive-by on our spring break trip to Florida beaches. Nice park. HP #9.
Reached this one in the dark, so I didn't really get to enjoy any scenery. Basically just took a few pictures and then left. Nice way to bring in the new year, with another highpoint.
This was the third State Highpoint that I reached in one day. Actually, I reached this one after dark. Good weather, very nice park.
Side-Note: I personally didn't have any problems, but this region of the country is HEAVILY policed. Don't speed.
I convinced a buddy to join me on a long state HP roadtrip that picked up 13 highpoints. This was one, nice park.
