Ascent Trip Report

On to Driskill Mountain which was only a few miles from the Lincoln Parish HP. It was an excellent day and had now warmed up to the mid-50’s. Eric and I ran from the car to the summit of Driskill, which at 535 feet is the highest point in Louisiana. The run was only about 5 minutes and the other trails/dirt roads on the map were either very rough or posted, so we headed back to the road for a 47:47 run. There was very little traffic so for the most part it was a quiet relaxing run.
