After a grueling hike, I finally summited this difficult, very remote peak. Oh wait, I just drove to it.
A great little place. Iowa's done the best of making something out of nothing of all the HP's I've seen. Very nicely done.
Cute little park and a fun day trip from Minneapolis
On the annual drive to Indy, I stopped by Hawkeye Pt. The detour noted in the directions from this site was still in place, but it was easy to follow the directions and find the place. This was even easier than the IN, OH, KS, and NE highpoints, and it's distinction as the state highpoint seems a bit dubious when you look around. But it's a nicely kept place and has some interesting things there.
It's a very interesting summit area, with all of the signs and articles on other highpoints and the history of the area!
This is the standard for privately owned high points. Good job Iowa.
We were visiting my wife's family in the Des Moines area and we made the drive up to highpoint, about a 4.5 hour drive from Des Moines. Ate lunch in Spirit Lake after visiting the top and then were back to the family home by 4:30. They do a good job of caring for their highpoint, compared to most of the others.
Even with 59 and 60 south out of Worthington being closed, this was still easy to find. There was a very, very stiff "breeze" while we were there. I'm not entirely sure that there isn't a spot closer to the silo that may be a few inches higher, so I just walked the whole area to be sure.
Made the summit with SPer "I Like It on Top", Annie, and Nick.
With McCannster- Cool spot, noticed the distances to other highpoints were highly suspect on the monument
Nice place to visit, but flat
With Alika. Kinda chilly at the top.
Met up with a great friend for a fun little weekend trip. The area is a nice little spot with some very nice improvements.
Had a nice drive there and rolled up ready to dominate it. Only to find many bugs and tons of corn!
Another intense one. More man eatting flying insects. Got an awesome key chain
Congratulations iowa! a well-done high point. it was odd to be looking up at the corn from the highpoint ...
I believe I was here in about 1992 I may still have the key chain to prove it!
It is a nice place to visit - I liked the signs and distances to the other state highpoints.
HP #24 for me.
...And I'd reached the top of ID, AZ, and NM before getting the one that's two hours from where I grew up.
Post-expedition beers in nearby Worthington, Minnesota, to wind down from the harrowing trek.
