High Points: Driskill Mountain, Louisiana

The mile-long walk invites contemplation like few other high point approaches.

Elevation: 535 feet

Summit

The mile-long walk invites contemplation like few other high point approaches: The eroded red clay path abuts a 19th-century graveyard next to the boarded-up, one-room Mt. Zion Presbyterian Church. Locals still decorate the graves with flowers in coffee cans; the waist-high summit cairn sits like a homemade headstone in a quiet clearing.
