Not much of a "hike" here, but the rotating faux radar is a nice touch to the area's history.
The peak might not have been much, but I did enjoy going by the Wright brothers' place and to Gen. Grant's birthplace on this trip
Had a couple weeks off from work, decided to take a trip to the East from IL to hit a bunch of HPs. (HP 2 of 9 during this trip.) Got here just when it was getting dark, a little bit hard to find, still a pretty cool setup. Little to no view.
Nice little high point general area, but relatively disappointing views all things considered (parking lot, construction and buildings), and no hike to speak of (15 steps from parked car to actual high point).
Mediocre and boring highpoint, but a nice plaque for it with an american flag. Went on a Sunday when its technically closed but parked just outside the gate and walked through an opening in the fence, no issue.
Drive up on a Community College Campus.
College campus, just drove up to the spot. They did a nice job, but not much of a "hike" to the peak.
On a road trip from Chicago around the southeast. Arrived just after dark on a very cold and snowy night. My dog barked ferociously at something across the parking lot...
Headed to Ohio since i still have vacation days to burn before the end of the year (thank you covid ... sigh). First of two highpoints this trip.
Flew into Columbus Oct 17, 2020 took a motel, and next day picked up a rental car and drove to Campbell Hill. US State Highpoint #43 for me.
5 done, 45 to go.
Thank you Ohio!
It is what it is, check out the many national parks close by.
While in Columbus to watch the St Louis Blues (yay!), I meandered out and got myself a high point!
We made a 14.5 hour 725 mile round-trip from Illinois to bag Hoosier Hill and Campbell Hill in the same day. The weather was fantastic and you could see for “miles!” Walk over to the spinning radar dish for an interesting piece of history. It appears they will be building a new museum in the future. That should be interesting.
Our Google Girlfriend routed us directly from Hoosier Hill. Along the way I lamented if this upcoming and future generations will lose map reading skills?!
On the way home we came up with a new game to pass the time....star spotting. Have you seen those metal stars people put on their houses? We shout out star when one was spotted. We spotted 8 triple star houses and my brother spotted a quadruple star house! You say “star” for every one you spot.
Beautiful sunny day
Bellefontaine, Ohio - for a town that prides itself as the "Peak of Ohio" not a lot of publicizing the high point.
First of two HP's today, 2nd of the trip. Cold, overcast day with intermittent snow/rain. We lost a lot of good men summiting this one.
Schools out for Summer.
2nd of 4 HP trip.
After Kentucky and a ton of driving. Off towards Greenville, OH to stay before hitting Indiana and Illinois following day.
Very 'urban' state highpoint.
Park in the lot of a school/education center, and then walk to the highpoint. Overlooks a wide open green field though which has some scenery to it.
