North Dakota – Easement provides public access

Announcement posted on Facebook, 10-22-18, by Stony Burk:

“Another highpoint secured for public access. For a few years now several Highpointers Club members working with the Highpointers Foundation have worked tirelessly to nurture a great relationship with the owners of White Butte and develop a permanent accessible easement to the summit. New signs were made and installed to alleviate some confusion over another family member’s adjacent property where he posted no trespassing signs along the section line.The old donation mailbox was replaced with a new iron ranger that securely accepts donations. The property was surveyed and alawyer was hired to draw up paperwork creating a 99 year easement lease guaranteeing public access to North Dakota’s state highpoint. Included in the agreement will be several future additional improvements to the ranch road that we currently have to walk on until the gate. Special thanks to highpointers Valerie Naylor and Dave Covill, and ranch owners, Daryle and Mary Dennis, for this accomplishment that will benefit future generations of highpointers.”

    You don’t really have to walk that over grown road to the gate if you have a 4WD and you drive carefully.
