Ascent Trip Report

The main highpoint of Catahoula County was much easier to get to than I expected. My navigational aid did not show any roads leading to this spot and the topographic map only shows a trail, however, this "trail" is now an excellent dirt road which begins through a non-posted, open, metal gate and passes just 20 feet east of the highpoint. A word of warning, however, there were logging trucks using this dirt road and they travel at relatively fast speeds. Be careful on the sharp corners. I imagine these drivers are not used to seeing "tourists" in the area.
