VandalismTagging is Vandalism

VandalismCity of Henderson’s Highest Point
On February 19, 2013, the city of Henderson’s highest point was officially designated at 3,540 feet above sea level. To mark the high point, a survey monument was placed by city of Henderson staff and members of the Highpointers Club, a national organization that promotes the preservation and conservation of high points and provides a forum for education.

Henderson’s high point is located in the Black Mountain Regional Preserve, adjacent to Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area. The area is characterized by steep, rugged terrain and is not accessible by a city of Henderson maintained trail. For your safety, all visitors are strongly advised to stay on city marked trails only.
