Long Description:
U.S. Geological Survey Benchmark denoting elevation above sea level of 45 feet. Dated 1952. Marked RJD TT.

This bench mark is located in J.B. Starkey Wilderness Park at GPS coordinates N 28 14.694 W 082 36.223.

From the west entrance to the park, follow the paved road past the ranger station and turn right toward the day area. Where the road turns left, continue straight east on the paved bike path. Continue east on the bike path 2-1/4 miles until you pass underneath the high voltage transmission line. Continue east approximately another 800 feet after passing under the power line and turn right (south) on paved road. This road will take you to a pump house. Continue past the pump house on the dirt road south approximately 1000 feet until you reach another dirt cross road. Turn left (east) and continue 430 feet until you intersect with another dirt road running WNW. From this intersection go approximately 75 feet southwest to find the marker post. The bench mark is near the base of the post.
