Franklin Parish High Point Trip Report
Date: November 2000
Exit I-20 at Delhi, exit 153, LA 17. Go south 7.8 miles to LA 858. The map shows a small town right
before the turn, but there really isn't one. There is a Firestone tire dealer on the corner of 17 and 858. Go
west on 858 approx. 3 miles. You will pass the junction with LA 859, then see three houses on the south,
then Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. The road is immediately after the church. Drive (at your own peril -
although a 4x4 should have no problem) or hike less than a half mile to the top. The slab is on the
highest point. The high ground to the immediate south doesn't reach the 135 contour.
Total Elevation Gain: 35 feet!
