Thanks for the vote. As I'm sure you've read, the property is only open the first weekends in June, July, August and Sept. The owners understandably want to control the volumn of people that want to visit the highpoint, particularly since it is only a couple hundred feet from their home, and visitors must walk right past their house to get to it... My only suggestion is that you contact the owner to plead your case. I don't know if they make any acceptions. You can also try contacting the Highpointers Club to see if they have any pull with the owners. Good luck!
Thanks again for the vote...!
Good page. I caught a lot of flak for posting the final highpoint in delaware. Luckily there were some that appreciated it. Thanks for the well written description of this highpoint.
Thanks for the vote!
Has anyone heard what the 2020 Access dates will be? Will there be a winter date again? Thanks
I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org (as listed above) and they replied promptly. Here is what I was told:

So many of you bring us gifts and, while we certainly appreciate it – it is not necessary. However, if you do feel so inclined, we have started a collection of state mugs brought to us by hi-pointers. We are hoping to eventually get all 50 states. We got one from Afghanistan last year! So, if you want to bring a gift, bring a mug! (If you bring one, drop a business card or something with your name and address in it, so we know who it is from.) You can just leave it on the rocks under the Charles Mound sign.
