Ascent Trip ReportWe started today in Natchitoches. Today was devoted to a series of very easy parish highpoints, topped off by a visit to the state highpoint at Driskill Mountain.
First on today's agenda was the highpoint of Winn Parish, about 25 miles to the northeast of Natchitoches. We got onto US-84 eastbound toward Winnfield, and then turned north onto Range Road, across from the Gum Springs Campground within the Kisatchie National Forest. We went north 1.2 miles then turned left and stopped at a gate spanning the road. The highpoint was a few feet of walking past the gate to a rise in the road. We explored the nearby woods for higher ground, but the cleared area looked highest. The visit took five minutes.
From here we drove into Winnfield, then north toward our next objective, Lincoln Parish, near the state highpoint at Driskill Mountain.
