of course it's not the Smoky Moutains but for Louisiana it was a great hike. I thought the views were wonderful for LA. It's good for a relaxing afternoon hike.

Nice short trail to the high point in LA. Not that great of a view though. Trail is pretty well marked once you get to the actual hiking trail.

Wanted to summit the highest point in La. the trail was good lots of wooded scenery. The lookout was beautiful to see across to other hills in the area didn't feel like Louisiana at all. A nice pick of and escape spot.
Trail was well marked. Wish there was a summit marker at top though. Also nice to go to Bonnie and Clyde museum in area.

Easy hike. 1.8mi is the round trip distance. Wide dirt road is easy to follow and marked with arrows. I did it with my 3 boys aged 9, 7, and 4. Bring some baubles for the geocaches. They've been stocked pretty well, and you will want to trade. The view isn't all that great along the way or at the summit, so 4 out of 5 stars.

Loved this hike! Has several trails that branch off, but we had no problem finding the summit. There are a couple fun geocaches here too!

Awesome place to kill an hour or so. Seen a statue in a tree that I will post picture of, share your photos of him as well if you find him on the blue dot trail.

Nice little hike to Louisiana's highest point! The only complaint is the trail markings. Though the trail is somewhat marked, it could be a little better. Great 20-40 minute round trip hike (includes time at peak).

Yep, it's a pretty walk in the woods. Don't follow the blue blazes though. That trail is crooked and narrow and leads to nowhere except a false hilltop. Follow the wide and straight path and it will lead you to the right mountain top.

Super-short trail through the woods. There are actually two options - one VERY clear path and the other marked by clear blue blazes on the trees. My husband, my dog and I had a great time! There was a tiny bit of mud in a couple places, but they were easy to get around without getting our feet wet.
