TLPMain Route  Sucess!
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.

Highpoint #30 (second of the day, after AR). Rented a minivan & took turns driving from MA (home) to MO-AR-LA-MS-AL-FL & back.

My brother and I where driving from Dallas, TX back to Atlanta and decided it would be an easy side trip to climb the LA and AL highpoints. We exited the interstate and made our way to the church as described on the highpointers webpage. We left the parking lot and made our way past the metal gate and down the path. I think we went the long way around. After wondering around in the woods for 30 to 45 minutes, we finally saw a sign way up in a tree with an arrow pointing the way. We followed that trail and were soon at the highpoint marker. All in all a nice little adventure for my 5th highpoint.

Climbed this Louisiana highpoint with my dog, and ran into another couple, Dana and Bobby, also hiking Driskill. They said they wanted to see my name in the posts so I decided to start adding my summits into this website. Nice hike, hot day. Who'd have guessed there was a hill in Louisiana! This was my third U.S. highpoint.

Muddy red clay stuck to my boots all the way to the top. Quiet, misty, and calm.

My son and I had a nice, warm walk to the top of Driskill. No other people around. The summit is not high, but there is an obvious uphill slope to the trail so you feel like you're on top when you get there. The summit is wooded and I imagine quite sticky and unpleasant in the summer.

The route is a bit confusing, but the owners of the land have put up lots of arrows and signs pointing out the correct route and stopping you if you're on the wrong one...it only takes about 15 minutes...I had a beautiful sunshine day...a sweet garden snake was trying to block my return path...I think he wanted to play.

Drove over from my home in Tyler. It was raining when I arrived, but I couldn't let that stop me. Took my GPS and camera and headed out. I got a little confused (the rain didn't help) but found the right route. This is definately not a classic highpoint. It was more fun looking at where Bonnie and Clyde were killed a few miles away.

Driskell is confusing, and the only thing that saved me was the directions from the highpointers website to get there. It was a nice day, but the trail was a little wet, due to a hurricane the previous morning. Another high point down!

Flew from PA to New Orleans. Drove through the night, and arrived at the trail head just before dawn. Summited just as the sun was beginning to rise.
