He probably wants to be President. (I'm perfectly serious.)

If you're interested in hiking you can climb the Monte Forno too (I-A-SLO).



BTW, there's also a quadripoint between 4 Canadian provinces.
The exclave of Jungholz forms a quadripoint between A and D.
Two provinces (Manitoba and Saskatchewan) and two territories (NWT & Nunavut) - is that the point you mean? (Only one I can think of, and it's only existed since Nunavut became a separate territory in 1999 or thereabouts.)

Yes. Is it marked someway?

i have only seen A-D-CH tripoint at Bodensee (and was very dissapointed that there is even not a buoy signing it
since non of yugoslav tripoints were not at HR teritory, today's HR tripoints are hardly accessible unfortunately.

That's because it isn't defined.

Neither HR-SRB-H and HR-SRB-BIH? They are located on rivers.

not really. HR-H-SRB tripoint is actually not on Danube, but on Danube branch. from SRB side it probably is accessible, from H maybe, brom HR there is forest swamp, but i see a path that comes 1 km before tripoint so maybe it isn't that wild.
HR-SRB-BIH seems to be more accessible.
HR-H-SLO - only for real enthusiasts, HR-BIH-MNE too (it doesn't seem so, but it is on some peak actually)

Actually, one can see only five states from Rock City AFAIK. Georgia, both Carolinas, Alabama and Tennessee itself. The other two are a measurement error, they claim one can see a mountain on the Kentucky/Virginia border but it is further than they say.

I haven't visited any tripoints of any level. But I have to drive by the Rioja/Navarre/Aragon tripoint, it is located at the side of a road. A few kilometers South, the Rioja/Aragon/Castile and Leon tripoint is accessible too.

No idea. I'd guess you can't get anywhere near it by road. Not lots of roads up there.

Yes, e.g. by canoe. I admit I only googled it, but there are at least unpaved roads nearby. It must be surely much easier to reach it than climbing around hills somewhere in Montenegro

Yes. But too lazy to bother confirming what I already knew. :-P

It says:

"The four corners are located between Kasba Lake to the north and Hasbala Lake to the south at a place which, according to the Canadian Tourism Development Corporation is "extremely remote and inaccessible".[2][3] It is located by an area of marginal taiga forest, the only place in Nunavut which is not Arctic tundra or ice cap.[2] It is in remote northern wilderness, hundreds of kilometres from any road or railway" Bolding by yours truly.

In Spain I know one quadripoint (provincial), in Four Provinces Island (obvious name), which lies in Cíjara Dam in Guadiana River. The provinces are Cáceres and Badajoz in Extremadura and Toledo and Anchuras exclave of my province (Ciudad Real) in Castilla-La Mancha.

http://goo.gl/maps/OE45V

I am not really sure if the four provinces coincide at a point, but of course that Island (formerly just a mount, before the construction of that dam) contains that four provinces and they say there is some kind of marker there. It is only reachable by boat.

And then you'll have to swim. There's also high grass everywhere.
