Mt.Pisgah Out and About

Mt. Pisgah has a number of loops and hikes that go out, up and around the top of the mountain.  It offers open oak fields, riverside lush greenery with possibly some late wildflowers, hillside trails among the firs, and maybe a view from the top if the leader feels ambitious.  The leader plans to scout the area before the hike.
Do bring plenty of water, lunch or snacks, good shoes or boots, and the rest of the essentials.  June can be quite hot and humid, so come prepared for that.
Please note: There is poison oak in the area, and there's a parking fee of $5.00 per car.
