Afternoon hike - Mt. Pisgah in Northborough!

  • to
  • Mt Pisgah Main Entrance

    19 Smith Rd, Northborough, MA (map)

    42.359615 -71.672226

  • I'll be in the parking lot at about 1:45 - I have a black Yaris. Cell:[masked]
  • I will be back from Zambia and eager for some cold weather!  This is a really nice short hike for a late afternoon. One of my favorite local hikes.

    Hike through a hardwood forest on former farmland. Climb to the highest point in Northborough! Two scenic vistas to the east and Boston skyscrapers visible on a clear day.  We'll make a loop up to the North vista, walk along the ridge to the South viewpoint and then back down!

    Total distance: About 2.5 miles
    Tortoise time: About 2 hours
    Some climbing and hilly sections - nothing too steep.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
