Woodall Mountain, Mississippi (806'), March 23, 2019.
Mileage: Drive up.
Directions: US-72 to MS 25 to Fairground Road/Old Highway 25 to County Road 176 in Iuka, MS. Turn onto Woodall Mountain Road. The roads are well signed; the final approach is steep.
This is the third highpoint visited on this road trip (see trip reports for Arkansas and Louisiana). Yesterday, Sandy and I drove through the farmlands of Louisiana and across the Mississippi River into Mississippi. We stayed at a hotel in Corinth and got up early to visit Woodall Mountain.
|Pretty amazing bridge and view of the river!|
|Lots of signs. This highpoint is easy to find!|
Though there's history in this area (Civil War battle), the actual highpoint is quite understated. Woodall Mountain no longer has a tower; just remnants of the foundation remain.
The real excitement is getting there; the last short push to the top is on a steep gravelly road. Going down this road was fun too.
|Foundation posts for the tower are in a fenced in area.|
