Wilmington, Delaware: Highest Point in Delaware

The "Ebright Azimuth" is only 447 feet above sea level, and it's right next to a sidewalk along a suburban street; in fact, the sidewalk has been cut around the disk that marks the spot.

Ebright Rd, Wilmington, DE
I-95 exit 11 in Delaware (northbound) or exit 6 in Pennsylvania (southbound); they're the same exit. Drive west on Hwy 92 for four miles. Turn right at the stoplight onto Ebright Rd. Drive north a half-mile. You'll see a fire tower on the left, then you'll come to a stop sign. Just past the stop sign, on the left, is the high point marker.

Highest Point in Delaware

It was quite a climb but I made it to the highest point in Delaware last week! The historical marker in the photo is about 50 feet north of the actual survey mark. I believe the fence in the background is in Pennsylvania so, even though Delaware's highest point isn't very high visitors can still see two states.

Once you summit Delaware's 447 ft. high point, it's hard to enjoy the lower altitude parts of the state. The "Ebright Azimuth" is along a suburban street; the sidewalk is cut around the disk that marks the spot. There's a historical marker and a bench for sitting. Easily the easiest-to-visit U.S. state High Point.
