Woodall Mt, at 807 feet, is the highest point in Mississippi. It was the scene of fighting during the American Civil War and on September 19, 1862, the Battle of Iuka took place there. No hike is required to reach the top, so this microbox should be easy to get.
From Iuka, go south on Hwy 25, then west on CR 187 (Fairground Rd). Go 1.1 mi South and turn West (right) on CR 176. Drive 0.6 mi and turn North (right) onto a good dirt road (CR 185) beside a residence. Follow the steep road as it curves 1 mile up to the summit of Woodall Mountain.
From summit, walk west to a lone pine tree with 2 stone benches nearby. From tree, walk north (right) 11 steps to a stone bench laying on its side. The microbox is behind the left leg under a concrete slab.
