Driskill Mountain - Louisiana Highpoint

Took my kids on the hike up Louisiana's highest peak in the Fall of the year. It was nice and cool and the view of the trees from the top (although small) was really unique for our typical landscape views. My teenage kids found a letter written to a deceased Father from his wife about their life together and left on the trail. She wrote about how she goes there to feel close to him since he enjoyed the place so much. Although bizarre, it added to the adventure of our outing.

i couldn't even find this trail. clicked on the directions and it took me to someone's house. then put in Bodcau Dam, and went there, but still couldn't find the trails. Then I put in Durden Nature Trail and it told me I was still 40 minutes away. Very disappointing and a waste of time and money.

What a great place to see the Louisiana bayou and experience some real swamp life! I found more information for the uninitiated at http://www.stateparksreview.com/louisiana-state-parks/chicot-state-park/. I'd ride the loop any time!

The kind of place that really takes you away from the city for awhile. We followed the biking trail but found it to be a great hike, leisurely and nothing too challenging. We made some shortcuts through the trail because the sun was starting to set, but took us about two hours to go 4 miles, taking our time. You have a lot of different options and things to see though. Very kept up.

Really well marked for the shortcut trail too. That's about 4 miles. Handy to know, which I didn't before setting out. Luckily, a nice guy on a bike stopped about the 3 mile mark and checked on me and my kid. I didn't know that it was that difficult of a trail, so be prepared for a workout, even if you only do the 4 mile route.

Very well maintained. A little citified for a hike, but very nice nonetheless.

Nice place, my first time going anywhere like this in Baton Rouge. Did get a little confused though because I followed the sign to walk the trail opposite to cyclists. Otherwise, nice hike!

The trails here are great for getting deep into the woods. They can be confusing at times but overall a fun hike. We chose to hike them shortly after a rain so the bugs were absolutely horrible. So much so that we ran most of the trail due to the horseflies. I wouldn't mind going again at a different time to see if it's better.
