Blue Ridge Parkway Hikes - Mt. Pisgah Hiking Trail
Review of Mt. Pisgah Trail
1.5 miles, one way **Strenuous
At the beginning of the Mount Pisgah Trail is a sign that reads:
"This trail leads through Pisgah
National Forest to the summit
of Mount Pisgah named after the
biblical mount from which Moses
first saw the promised land. This
peak affords a panoramic view of
western North Carolina.
Trail length 1.5 miles. Elevation
gain 712 feet, steep in spots."
The picture on the left is a view of Mount Pisgah
from the Mount Pisgah parking lot. It doesn't look too strenuous
from here. Does it?
Well, it is, unless you are young and/or in good shape. But don't
let this scare you. It is worth the extra effort to get into
shape! Go for it! You'll be glad you did.
Take plenty of water. Once you reach the Mount Pisgah Summit you
will want to stay and enjoy the fantastic view,
maybe with a small snack.
Don't miss this trail!!!
