Signs along a descent little path on private property. Well maintained highpoint area. It is about the best it could be, considering all factors.

HP #29 for me. HP #13 for Lillian. We visited with friends Sam and Laura from nearby W. Monroe, LA on a southern road trip. Nicely maintained trail and hill top..even with a small and unexpected view!

CharlieRussellKim & Charlie's grand adventure  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 5, 2011


2 day/ 2 "summit" trip with my wife Kim. Summit gained via the customary route from the Zion trail head. Battled glacial runoff (Melting ice), AMS (slight headache), and nearly had to abort the summit bid D/T surprise storm moving in (not really, it just sounds good). We pressed on and persevered. Summit achieved at exactly 1200 CST.
Trail was muddy but manageable D/T gravel and pine needles. It is well maintained and marked. Great Thanks to the landowners who keep this open and developed!

Sick trip down south to do Driskill. The weather was very pleasant and a little humid. We bagged the "False Mountain" as well as the highpoint. Great little outing in a rural setting.

Go figure, climbed this on the hottest day of the year, I think. It was around 104 with a heat index near 110. A Camelback was essential! This was highpoint #4 for me.

We made a short side trip while driving from New Orleans to Dallas after running the Rock & Roll Half Marathon. Good thing this was an easy hike. Very nice area.

cochin44Great day!  Sucess!

What a very peaceful and enjoyable hike. Me and my 11-year son stopped on the way to the northernmost part of the state. A beautiful quiet highway leads up to the trailhead. No other visitors were there when we arrived, and all we could hear was a few birds chirping. A 55 degree sunny sky made for perfect conditions. Easy to find your way up, just stay on the widest, most traveled looking trail. When you get to the base of the south summit, you will actually head NW and take a clockwise path around it before the last steep approach to the north summit. Perfect for casual or beginning highpointers like myself!

TracyHP #32 - a fun stroll thru the woods  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 8, 2010


Hiked this one with my son Lance (his 6th HP) on our 5 southern state high points sojourn (this was our 5th state hp in 6 days). I thought it would be more anti-climactic; however it was enjoyable. It was additionally more fun than I expected because we ran into a couple from Las Vegas (where I'm from) on our way up as they were making their way down (small world!!)

If you do this one and have time there is a Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum nearby that is quite interesting. It is located in Gibsland which is 7 to 8 miles north of where law enforcement "off'd" Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow on Hwy. 154 in 1934. There is a stone historical marker at the actual site.

HP'd Arkansas the day before, rained the whole way down to LA. Made for a wet, soggy hike. Not too bad, though, as the trail is sandy. Sun came out half-way up the mountain, so beautiful views, birds tweeting, and over all a pleasant and enjoyable hike =)

Drove from Arkansas after doing Signal Hill. Started at the church, with rain coming down and a fairly muddy trail. On to Texas.
