Birthday “hike” to knock out the top of Delaware!
Not your typical highpoint with it being in the middle of a suburb, but I can appreciate it for what it is.
Nice little high point. Took a lyft there as part of a weekend roadtrip and convinced my lyft driver to knock out his first high point!
My wife Leah and I looked around and found the sign. Fun treasure hunt. Peak # 12 for us!!!
Rather boring urban/suburban highpoint, but an easy enough bag on the way to DC and the mid-atlantic HPs.

I located the benchmark on Ebright Street and took a photo at the plaque. Walked into the trailer park to Turf Rd, Alpha Drive, and Sulky Rd to make sure I crossed the 450 ft contour line (which is labeled between the second and third trailer home on the east side of Sulky Rd on World Topo maps). Some claim there are nine or more spots around Ebright Rd that have been claimed as the High Point of DE. Since the area inside the trailer park has been excavated it's hard to believe that a spot at 451 feet exists naturally but that is supposed to be on Turf Rd in front of (to the west of) the first trailer on the north side of the street - I walked past that spot but I was on the south side of the street, as I was going off the World Top contour of 450 ft. Best bet is to just go with the sign at the intersection of Ebright Rd and Ramblewood Drive and go with the 448 ft official elevation. Also I wandered over to the benchmark on Winterset Rd near the PA/DE line. The third benchmark is rumored to be under one of the trailers in the park (again proving the area isn't natural and has been excavated). These non-mountain, non-hill highpoints never seem to have a definite highpoint. Florida was the same thing, as is Rhode Island (even though it is a hill).
easy peazy HP, parking is a bit iffy though
Hit this alpine climb after driving up from Mount Rogers the day before.
We stopped at this High Point on our way from Philadelphia to D.C. The kids enjoyed this one because there was no hiking involved. Lol
Clambered up this peak on the way from D.C. to Connecticut while visiting in laws. State high point number four for me!
Coming from Florida it was reassuring that #2 lowest high point is just as challenging as ours :)
Last stop on Mid-Atlantic high point trip
Several successful expeditions to this bad boy.
Walk across the street, read the sign, take a picture, move along. Completed the first hour of a six-day drive across the country via Chesapeake, Durham, Asheville, Nashville, Springfield, Hannibal, St. Joseph, Lincoln, Sidney, Scottsbluff, Casper, Bozeman, and Butte to Seattle.
Likely the easiest of all the state highpoints to reach...
Made a day trip here the day of my cousin's wedding to nab #40 for me.
This is in a residential area-neighborhood, that is rather indistinguishable in height from the surrounding area.
Took me 10 mins to park the car, get dressed (it was winter), walk across the street, and take the requisite pics.
6th high point for the long weekend. Nicely positioned along the side of the road.
Such an interesting and cool state highpoint. I walked all over the neighborhood to make sure I hit the highest point haha, which really was indiscernable. Did it as part of the weekend running the Boston Marathon.
Flew in to Philly and back home in same day. Hit highpoint #34 for me, then spent the rest of the day in Philly checking out historical sites and eating cheesesteaks.
This was a quick stop in the dark on my way to Arlington National Cemetery for Memorial Weekend.
Lovely English woman ran out from her house to give me historical data about the HP
