Mt. Pisgah

April 25, 1999

This trip was originally scheduled to hike the North Ridge Trail to Mary’s Peak. The Ranger was unable to tell if the trail was passable. So two days before the trip I scouted the trail. After three miles and 1500-ft. of elevation gain and after going over, under and around 21 fallen trees, the trail became obliterated by snow. So I called off the trip and substituted a loop trip on the east side of Mt. Pisgah. Brad Berg was the only one to sign up. The weather was overcast with a threat of showers (which materialized just as we finished our hike). As opposed to the more commonly used west-side trail which climbs 1000 feet steadily, the east-side trail undulates as it passes through oak forests. Our return loop was in open country with great views of farmland, foothills and mountains.
