26-Jul-2015 -- From satellite imagery, I knew that a dirt road ran close to this forested Degree Confluence Point; the trick was to find this dirt road. Unfortunately my GPS receiver routed me onto a different road: a narrow double track that ‘fizzled out’ in a field (lined with hunting blinds, with cattle grazing in the distance). At this point, I was still 1 km from the point ‘as the crow flies’, and about 170 meters lower in elevation. Continuing on foot, however, I was able to continue to follow the path as it ‘switch-backed’ up a forested hill, joining the wide dirt road that I had hoped to find in the first place.
About 200 meters from the point, I left the dirt road, and hiked steeply up the hill to the south, towards the point. Shortly before reaching the point, I was surprised to find a narrow ridge-top dirt path that passes just 40 m from the point (this path, however, does not seem to intersect the dirt road).
The confluence point itself lies in the forest, just on the far (southern) side of a ridge. My total hike was about 2 km each way (with about 170 m elevation gain/loss). As I noted earlier, you could avoid most of this hiking by finding the correct dirt road.
