(visited by Ross Finlayson)

15-Mar-2017 -- Well, this was a letdown. I’d been looking forward to visiting this ‘forgotten’ point (for the first time in more than 16 years), as it was in such an interesting location - just 1/10 mile from the Buffalo National River. Satellite imagery (Google Earth) showed that it lay close to ‘County Road 241’, which I write in quotes because it appears to be not much more than a doubletrack path. But I thought that even if I couldn’t drive all the way down this road (in my 2WD rental car), I could hike along it.

But unfortunately, I missed the turnoff to County Road 241 (from County Road 240, off Mount Hersey Road). Instead, my GPS receiver routed me to another road that turned out to be gated closed, with a “No Trespassing” sign. This was my closest approach, 0.92 miles from the point.

Reviewing satellite imagery afterwards, I realized that I had missed the turn onto County Road 241. For future visitors: From Mount Hersey Road and County Road 240, take a right turn at 36.01555°N 93.00446°W.

Afterwards, I drove down to the bridge over the river on highway 123 (south of the settlement of Hasty), and photographed kayakers on the river. If you’re into kayaking, then this might be a fun way to reach the point: about 3 miles each way from the Carver boat ramp.
