Fun hike in the woods
Quick little 1 1/2 day trip down to AR/LA to get a couple HPs to end the year and start the 4 day weekend. Didn't think they were going to be too spectacular after looking them up. This one was ok...nice short 3/4 mile hike up, sign at the summit but couldn't find the USGS marker...looks like it may have been covered up or stolen/destroyed. One decent view to one direction.
Really nice little hike with some decent views. Knocked this one off pretty quickly with the dog.
If you like spiders, then this is the trail for you! Nice little trail with okay views from the top, and some nice wild flowers on the way up!
After spending a couple days driving down the east coast and across the south, I got to hot Louisiana. This is a nice little 1.5 mile RT hike to a forested summit with hardly any views. But they take a lot of pride in the high point, and had some really cool markers. It’s nice of the people who own the land, to allow high pointers to access this spot. My dog was so done with the road trip at this point though, and the heat and humidity dang near killed him.
This was a longer walk than I anticipated. I got chased by giant bugs and my stroll turned into a sprint! Haha
Foggy morning to begin the hike up hill. Well marked trail, did wear bright safety vest just in case hunters were active.
Short trail run, peaceful place. Hiked from the Driskill church.
Me and my wife Leah completed this for our 7th peak! Nice trail...well marked...summit was really nice. Love being a high pointer.
Strolled up the main trail from the Church parking lot. On the return I took the trail to the false summit (not worth it). No one else around.
Went in September and brought my dog. I didn't know if it was hunting season so she sported a nice orange vest!
Consumed too much and my brain was glowing for the hike. Nice area. Roadtrip from Ohio.
A peaceful walk to the Summit and this is the end of my trip 12/12 highpoint’s. What a great way to see America!
Little over 2 mile round trip hike... not flat, but not super steep. When I got to the summit after leaving Mt. Zion Church parking lot, there was a lizard on the stump marking the summit, so I guess I was beat to it!
Climbed with my 2 kids
This is Louisiana. I flew into Memphis. I then proceeded on a 1,955-mile road trip through the southern states to bag the highpoints in MO, AR, LA, FL, AL, and MS. Here is LA, highpoint number 20/51 for me and ranked 48/51. Parked at the rear of Mt Zion Church. I was the only one there for miles and miles. The trailhead starts in the rear of the church parking lot next to the cemetery. As you start up the trail, you are strongly encouraged to wear orange or pink during hunting season and two orange vests were hanging on the gate. The trail is well marked and is an easy walk. It was steaming hot in the bayou, I wore a ball cap and sunglasses, but found no need for bug spray.
Great day for a hike. Directions were very good. Trail behind the old church and cemetary. Signs along the trail tell about the families that support the trail. Gradual incline over the 1.5 miles to the top. Good views at the top along. orange vests were left at the trail head to year in hunting season.
A work meeting brought me to MS and so i took advantage of the free airfare and tackled the "mountain" in LA. Proud to be about a quarter of the way through the 50 state highpoints.
Wet and muddy. And my knee was a mess, probably on of the only state high points I could have reached that messed up..
Not much of a hike, did it in my flip-flops on my way back from a funeral. With somber in the air I made the most of this detour by googling nearby attractions. I got lucky when I went to Lake Bistineau State Park and found a drained lake!! It was other worldly as I rode my mountain bike around the bottom of a lake bed amoungst the exposed bald cypress underwater tree root system. Just bizarre.
