Fortnite Highest Elevation locations explained

Specifically, the highest elevation locations are as follows:

The volcano, in the north-east of the map. It's easy to spot, but note the actual highest point is on the south rim of the volcano. If you land in the wrong place, you can always jump inside, open your glider and find the right point again.

Mountain north-west of Snobby Shores, the one with the three rocks. You're in the right location if you see the highest elevation sign post.
