Accessed from the north entrance to Sicily Island Hills Wildlife Management Area, what is locally called Lovers Leap, is one of a few rare places in northeast Louisiana where hills drop off to sheer cliffs. From this vantage point the visitor can look at the small canyon below or gaze at distant vistas beyond the trees.

The photographs above show the continuing erosion of the soil here. Enjoy these hills while they last for someday, perhaps even in our lifetime, they may be referred to as the Sicily Island Mounds. If you think I am joking look on my  Photos/Map page at the erosion of the “Little Bryce Canyon” area that has taken place in just the past ten years. What was once a beautiful series of vertical columns has been reduced to an amalgam of plain soil.
