Long Description:
This Control station sits atop a fairly steep ridge. It is marked by three orange witness posts. It was placed in 2012 and is right next to a corn field. The best way to get to this disk is by parking in the grass next to the shoulder of the North bound lane of US61 and walking straight up the hill. The disk is in the center of the three witness posts.
