Driskill Mountain: Louisiana's Highest Point

Driskill Mountain is Louisiana's highest point at 535 feet above sea level. There is a state historical marker just off of the highway with information about the mountain. The Bienville Parish Police Jury and I erected the state marker at the site.

It's about a half-mile walk along a trail from the marker to the highest point.
