MAP: (Wellington Hill)

DESCRIPTION:

At 570 Ft Wellington Hill is the highest point in the city of Manchester.  The accessible highpoint is 300 Ft from the parking lot. From parking follow the grassy knoll between the tennis court and chain link fence past the pool and club house to the corner of two chain link fences.  My elevation showed 570 Ft. at the telephone pole however the nearby water tower appeared a few feet higher.

TRAIL DISTANCES:

Parking - Highpoint = 300 Ft.

NOTES / COMMENTS:

There is a chain link fence surrounding a water tower making the true highpoint inaccessible (without breaking the law). Purist high pointers may not accept this "found it" for finding and standing on the highest accessible spot in Manchester.
