Opis   EN   

Automatic translation thanks to:


Ebright Azimuth is the highest monumented point in the State of Delaware. It is located only about 300 feet from the Pennsylvania border, along Ebright Road. Having an official elevation of 448 feet above sea level, it is the 2nd lowest of the 50 State highpoints, a little over 100 feet higher than Florida's Britton Hill.

 

A visit to Ebright Azimuth is officially recognized by The Highpoint Society for a State Highpoint visit. In 1985, the National Geodetic Survey determined the elevation of Ebright Azimuth to be 447.859 feet. It also determined a point on private property in a nearby modular home park to be 450.949 feet. This is why Ebright Azimuth is the highest monumented point, i.e. it has a benchmark.

 

We could find nothing suitable for a log password in the vicinity. To log this virtual cache, have your picture taken in front of the sign above, or a picture of your GPSr with it if you are camera shy. Should you cache with a smartphone and are camera shy on top of that, we will probably accept just a photo of the sign; it's not like there is a problem with bogus virtual cache loggers on the OpenCaching North America website.

 

There is no parking on Ebright Road! Parking is available on several side streets off of it, and our party parked about 500 feet away. Please don't disturb the neighbors, although I'm sure they're used to moderate traffic from visitors. If you click the nearest caches on Geocaching.com link on this cache page, you will find there is a micro cache at the same posted coordinates, although it was missing at the time of our visit in April 2014. Enjoy your visit!

I think one may be able to log or capture in four different games (that I know of) at this spot now. Funny thing is I've been here many times but didn't realize that this was an OpenCaching spot too. I decided that I was going to get this one the next time I had to be here for whatever reason and this is it. Nice spot and very easy to access. I won't make that old joke about needing a team of sherpas, oxygen tanks, and climbing gear to summit Delaware's high point. Thanks.

Running around DE/PA/NJ with sfcchaz seeking "indie" caches.  Had thought of going up to Elizabeth, NJ, but ended up staying closer to home.

A parent from my son's Boy Scout troop works for an architecture / landscaping company that was supposed to work on some project here a couple years ago, but work was halted because they couldn't disturb the "high point".

The view was great on this beautiful, clear day.  Found the GC cache and deployed a Munzee while up here.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Sharing FTF with DudleyGrunt. DG and I decided to come out this way to do some alternate site caching as well as any other caches of opportunity. This was only OCUS cache of the day and nineth cache overall. Thanks for bringing us here.
