What a bizarre spot for a benchmark—in the middle of a stream?! I'm not sure if it's really a stream as described, but it's drainage of some kind. Two large culverts direct water through the area, one from the south and one leading to the west. I was able to make my way into that jungle-like area and walk around (not easily). Most of the rocks in the area were single, loose rocks rather than outcrops, but I saw a few outcrops here and there. However, they were bare and it would have been easy to spot a mark on them. The benchmark is probably still here, but either I didn't come across the correct outcrop or it was covered in moss or other vegetation. This would be worth another visit.
