Driskill Mountain

Bienville Parish, LA

Driskill Mountain is the highest point in Louisiana at 535 feet above sea level. Louisiana is not known for its mountainous topography, so it should be no surprise that its summit is not that impressive - although the drive through the woods out there is pleasant and, I assume, the hike up to the peak is probably quite nice as well. The mountain is named after James Christopher Driskill who came from Georgia and bought this 320-acre plot of land in 1859. In 1883, Driskill sold a two-acre parcel of land (along current LA highway 507) to Mount Zion Presbyterian Church with the agreement that it would remain a house of worship and cemetery in perpetuity.
