MacMikeHP #2  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 28, 2015


Second HP for the day (first was AR) on the way back from parents taking the LONG way back to Texas. Was in a rush to get back to DFW didn't get to fully enjoy the little hike back and up to the HP. It was a beautiful day.

Date Climbed: Apr 9, 2017


Started the morning here shortly after sunrise. Trees are not marked as well although it is a fairly quick high point. Definitely out in the boondocks...

Had a nice late-afternoon hike here. The "mountain" wasn't much, but the woods were scenic in their own right. Lots of bugs, though.

Short little hike but it was HOT and HUMID! This was our 8th state highpoint in this trip and the rest had been cold, wet, or at least cool! Nice hike though!

Glad the landowners keep it open. I did it at 2 AM in the moonlight and all things considered, the summit area is nice.

Date Climbed: May 24, 2014


Took another opportunity to make a "slight" detour while on a business trip and reach this "summit." Nice trail, easy to find w/a lot of markers. Didn't spend much time there as the bugs were eating me alive as I signed the register.

State HP #31, and the second on this day. We made the loooong 6-7 hour drive from Woodall in MS earlier in the day. Driskill was also uneventful, and nothing more than a little hike through the woods to the "summit"!

triviastevewhirlwind trip through the south  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 22, 2013
I had a long day in Arkansas, and made Driskill Mountain at sunset. This hike was the first one to freak me out, as I kept hearing noises in the woods and I was alone. Did it at dark, and literally ran in and back out. Apparently it had rained earlier in the day, so the trail was a little muddy. Never so glad to have completed a high point and to get the heck out of Dodge...

Date Climbed: May 1, 2013


Quite a bit of rain, and some sun too! Excellent information on Summit Post, and a great example of private land owners working with hikers to allow public access! A special thanks to the landowners for access, please respect their privacy and property to continue to allow access for future generations!

On a road trip from FL to NV we swung by and knocked out this High point in the middle of the night. It was fun!

huskertriguyBringing Youth to the Game, Pt. II  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2012


After summiting Signal Hill - Mt. Magazine the previous day, I took only four of our high school youth on this other short walk in the woods. Two high school students + my adult chaperone were not feeling at the top of their game.

Even the very unseasoned 15-year-old hiker who was caked in make-up and wore flip-flops (and is terrified of "all bugs") seemed to enjoy herself. Because we left the other three from our group in the van, we didn't dally. We were up and back within 30 minutes. It felt great to tag SHP #23.
