High Points: Britton Hill, Florida

A humble high point in a low-lying state

Elevation: 345 feet

Summit

This state is so vertically challenged that one of Britton Hill’s biggest competitors is a 149-foot-tall sewage plant. Given that absence of stature, the summit is appropriately humble. To reach the shiny granite marker, hikers must negotiate five steps and walk by a picnic shelter and restroom. There is, alas, no view of the solid waste disposal facility.
