From my web site:
So this highpoint is located at a vocational school called the Hi Point Career Center
, and there was some concern as to access. The author of the highpointers coffee table book, Joel Glickman, wrote under the heading for the Ohio entry as "highpointing Monday to Friday." There is a fence surrounding the center and a gate at the vehicular entrance, which is locked on weekends. If you're coming on a weekend, you're supposed to call ahead and ask them to leave the gate unlocked. When I called at 3:10pm on Friday, they had already left for the long weekend. In my research, however, I had read about a pedestrian gate that was not locked somewhere else on the campus. So I was prepared to walk around the perimeter of the place looking for this gate. When I arrived, I found that the main gate was locked
. It turns out that this pedestrian gate is about 100 feet to the left of the vehicle gate. It's hard to make out in this photo
, but the open pedestrian gate is on the left and the vehicular gate is on the right. It didn't look as though the pedestrian gate
had been locked in a while.
