Bienville, Louisiana Map

My husband and I had a nice, snowy hike today to the highest peak in Louisiana while passing through the state. I would definitely describe this as “easy” and “over before you know it,” as it only took us 14 minutes from our car to reach the summit on the blue trail. Temps of 20 degrees felt nice a crisp.

Great hike close to home. We took our miniature dachshund along with us. Knocked this trail out after breakfast and was home by lunch. Got a bit turned around on an unmarked trail which added some distance to our hike. Did this during December when it was cooler so we got to enjoy our hike rather than be miserable with bugs/heat.

Easy hike up to the highest point in Louisiana. There is a notebook at the top for you to sign your name. The trail starts on the side of Mt Zion Church, it’s ok to park in the church parking lot.

Nice clean trail. Good exercise

Easy, but not bad for a afternoon hike... Bring bug spray

Nice hike before a Mississippi State football game. Hail State!

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 trail, but good scenery and cool place to hangout by the summit.

Really nice easy hike. Good for all skill levels

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.

Try and find a statue in a tree on the blue 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.

Hiked this trail on 3/17/2016 Nothing to it ..Unless your in the area or just want to say you've been to the highest point in LA I would not suggest this trail.All you need is a bottle of water cause b4 you know it your at the top and back down. Although it would be nice to take a picnic, and sit on the bench and watch the sunset or sunrise. You park at the church, walk down the oilfield road and you will see a sign on which way to go...
