What is the highest hill in the region (within an hour’s drive of downtown Wilmington)?

Amanda Lisk

According to the Thomas’ Legion listing of highest elevations by county in North Carolina, it looks like Bladen County is the winner with an incline of 170 feet in Dublin (an hour drive from Wilmington).

The runner up is Columbus County, Chadbourn area, home to a 132 feet hill at the intersection of NC131 and SR 1519, 45 minutes from Wilmington.

Pender County comes in third at 115 feet in Atkinson.

New Hanover and Brunswick counties never get higher than 75 feet. Onslow County’s highest point is only 34 feet.

For the entire state, North Carolina’s highest elevation is 6,684 feet. That’s Mount Mitchell in Yancey county near Asheville. It’s actually the highest point east of the Mississippi.
