Mammoth Cave Highpoint Trip Report

Andy's book lists five areas, but the southernmost area that used to barely touch the park boundary (and is still shown that way on's online topo) now stops east of the boundary (as shown on the 1997 topo on Topozone), leaving only the four areas along Park Ridge Road.

I disagree with Dave Covill's report that the road bisects all the contours. My eyes and my GPS thought the road's position in relation to the contours was pretty much as shown on the topo. At any rate, the largest contour, near electrical box #30, seemed highest.

I searched for Dave's pill bottle register and found the perfect tree crack nearby, but to no avail.
