Farthest North by the South

This is really easy to miss. It's a small marker by the road, and there is only one small sign on the road before you get there. This is the terminus of a 200+ mile trail stretching across the state from west to east. There is a ditch between the road and the marker that makes pulling over impossible. There is a business (PCIS) with a parking lot right next to the marker. There was nobody there on a Saturday, but I can't speak for the rest of the week.
