Driskill Mountain, La.
Hello everyone. I decided to take a bit of time out to do a little bit of adventuring with my camera. You see, Outdoor photography is an amateur hobby of mine. So, I went Mountain climbing in Louisiana.
That’s right. Louisiana has a mountain. Driskill mountain that is. it’s 535-ft. high, the highest elevation point in the State. Hey, I’ll even tell you how to get there, if you care to discover a little known secret in La.
Google “Driskill Mountain, La.” for more directions to this area, since it is located off the roads in the forest on Hwy 507. The included directions are for people in the Baton Rouge, La. area, where I live down south.
In the USA. Go North thru Alexandria, La. onto Hwy 167-North, thru Winnfield, La., next town is Jonesboro, then Hodge. As you pass thru Hodge, turn left onto Hwy 147. Stay on 147 till you get to Hwy 507, turn left onto Hwy 507, and continue on this road.
When you pass by Hwy 797 on your right, Mt. Zion Presbyterian Church will be on your right about 1/4 to 1/2 mile. This Church is your starting landmark for Driskill Mountain. It’s the only landmark nearby.
Park on the left near the Cemetary. You will see the trail as well as the signs to the trailhead.
Just pass thru the opening in the fence on your left and continue up the trail. Follow the blue paint markings on the trees.
It about 3000 feet or so to the summit. Remember, this is private property, not commercial, so please be kind and respectful to the environment, and don’t leave trash behind or set fires and etc.

Flickr is a brand new photosite for me. I only have a few photos there, but that will increase over time.
Enjoy. Doctor Love
