Start of Hike

Start of the Mount Pisgah Hike. This is a classic scene for trailheads on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The sign reads: "Mount Pisgah Trail 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 is 1.5 miles. Elevation gain 712 feet. Steep in spots."
