- Visiting the second lowest state highpoint
- Taking a picture with the elevation sign
Delaware calls itself the First State, but it's home to the second lowest state highpoint (behind Florida), a mere 448 feet above sea level. Ebright Azimuth, named for its former landowners James and Grant Ebright plus the cartographic term for an angular measurement azimuth, is only 30 minutes from Philadelphia and is the most urban location of any state highpoint.
To reach the summit of Ebright Azimuth, all you have to do is drive to this quiet, suburban neighborhood, park your car, and walk a couple feet to the monument pictured below. As the sign subtly hints, the actual highest elevation in Delaware is an unmarked spot in the mobile home park to the west of here. To discourage people from wandering around private property, the State of Delaware and the Highpointers Club count visiting this sign as the official way to attain the state highpoint.
Dogs are allowed on leash. This isn't much of a hike, so anyone of any ability or age can "summit" Ebright Azimuth. You can visit in any season.
From Philadelphia, drive south on Interstate 95 into Delaware. Take the exit for Delaware Highway 92 / Naamans Road. Continue straight, then turn right onto Ebright Road. The monument will be on the left side of the road near the intersection with Ramblewood Drive.
