Let's head to Mt. Pisgah on the shut-in trail. It's suppose to be a cool, dry day and I want to go up high. And at Mt. Pisgah we'll have a 360 degree view! There is an elevation gain of 2000' for the first half of the hike. The trail begins at MP 403.6 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The trail crosses over the parkway a couple times, so If anybody wants to make the hike shorter, you could meet at MP 404.5 or 405.5, but it would be up to you to figure out when we would come to those destinations. I'd like to have lunch at the top to spend time there to take it all in before heading back down.
We'll leave promptly at 9:30, so please make sure your visits to Ingles are completed. It will be about half hour drive from Ingles to the trail head. Please respond in the comment section if you plan on meeting at the trail head. Dogs are encouraged to come.
