Located in north-central Louisiana, Driskill Mountain rises to 535 feet, making it Louisiana’s tallest natural peak. Of course, for other states this “mountain” may be considered a small hill, but we’ll take what we can get. The mountain was named after James Christopher Driskill, a Georgian man who moved to the area with his family in 1859. The heavily forested area attracts hikers from all over as the view of the mountain at the top is quite rare for a state. swampy like ours with many areas below sea level.
In these uncertain times, keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket-to-visit list at a later date.
