Mt. Pisgah

July 30, 2009

This Pisgah hike was designed as an extension of the typical “up the ridge and down” event most Pisgah hikers experience. The hike commenced in the Arboretum parking lot. From there we walked to the North trailhead, went around the outside of the North trail, then toward Pisgah, intercepting the main trail at the North/Main trail junction. We proceeded to the top and down the far side to a junction about 0.4 miles from the East trailhead. At this junction we followed the #2 trail east and back up to the top. We then doubled back down the main trail to the North trail junction. We continued down the North trail until we reached the junction with the Theodore trail. We then took the “shortcut” Theodore trail back to the parking lot, probably cutting ½ mile or so off the hiking distance if we had proceeded back to the North trailhead. The weather was excellent with blue sky and a few clouds. A morning hike proved to be best as it was a bit warm.

Hikers were Dick Hildreth, Charlie Thomas, Elle Weaver and Dan Christensen, leader.
