Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the church and hiked the trail up until reaching the east side of the south peak. From there I headed straight up east slope to the posted coordinates for the south peak. Wandered around a bit on top then returned to the general area of the main trail where I'd split off from. Continued on from there to the main Driskill Mtn HP. On the summit I ran into a family of four and a pup also enjoying a hike on the mountain. Signed the summit log, probably one of a dozen or more folks who'd already summited Driskill on this first day of 2018. Nice day to be chasing a few CoHPs here in Louisiana and a good start to 2018. Happy New Year!
