Flat high ground along faint mound ridges, or top of highest large mound “A”
Beckie & Dave Covill
Cool place. Easy to find. Park in Viz Ctr lot, which is open 9-5 362 days a year. $4 pp to visit, but they do take the NPS pass!!!! Sweet.
Walk out and across paved hwy to grassy meadow, meander to find highest pseudo-natural ground. All has been re-worked over the past thousand years….. Then, walk up the trail to the W about 1/8 mile to top of largest mound. 165’ high, about 75’ higher than flat ground below. Pretty nice view of….. nothing but flat bayou country…. ;)
Good VC, do the movie thing. If time permits, walk N to other mounds.
