Pretty glad I did this one in January. I hiked up in the morning and it was still 65 degrees. I can't imagine what it would be like in July or August.

Date Climbed: Dec 6, 2008


On Dec 6, 2008 my family successfully completed our first high point. We drove in from Barksdale AFB, LA and made our way to Driskill Mountain. It might have been only 535 feet, but it was a victory to us.

Just followed the newly bladed trail/road to the high point. Was a warm day and no one around. The road/trail was a bit confusing, just follow J.Edgar Hoover, just keep going right.

It was 95 degrees, and so humid it felt like you could cut into the air with a spoon. It was a nice and quiet short hike to the top, and the owners did a great job throwing little bits of history about the property on the walk up.

Part of the fun with this highpoint is finding it and enjoying the solitude of the area. I saw no one else from the time I left the little town nearby until I summited it. I hiked up the mountain in the late afternoon in very comfortable sunny skies. The summit was very well maintained and the view from just a bit down the path was nice. Overall, Driskill Mt. was worth the trip. Then I lost my ass at the roulette wheel in Shreveport. Darn!

The weather was perfect for my 4 month old son's first road trip and first highpoint. My wife and I took the dogs along as well and enjoyed this short family hike despite the logging noises emanating from across the road.

RedwicWatch Out For The Mud!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 27, 2007


It was a nice morning, but the first half of the dirt road/ path to the summit was a mudpit because it rained the night before . That red clay mud gets everywhere, and sticks like glue!!! The State Highpoint was worth the walk (and the mud), and the false summits were also enjoyable jaunts.

Hiked the .6 mile trail to the summit and said a little prayer for my father-in-law. Should have brought my camera, it was a nice leg stretcher and a new sign by the church, summit kiosk and benches, and a good cleared view over to Jordan Mountain all apparently done in 2006. Looked like the benches were brand new. Summit cairn was still there and I added a rock to it. Nice little stop, Highpoint #6.

Took forever to find the trailhead, but after getting to the top and taking some pics, hiked out and took my lunch on the steps of the church. A glorious day to be alive.

Arrived on the 20th at 10pm. Tried to find our way in the fog and darkness but then the rain came and we retreated through the mud. Spent the night sleeping under a shelter in town.. then went back through shin deep mud in the morning.

Date Climbed: May 26, 2006


The hike up was annoying to me. After a week of travel, and having done Texas the day before, I just wanted to get this over with. The summit had a picture of Jack Longacre on it. Always wondered what the guy looked like. Plus I saw this cool little lizard there, so I guess it was OK.

Considering the number of dissapointing highpoints in the Southeast, this 535 feet summit is about as good as could be expected. The walk up, while not at all challenging, at least helped you feel like you were climbing to a summit.
