One hour up with Joy. The weather changed on the way up, clouds came in. We heard thunder so we tagged the platform and got down. Beautiful ridge climb from the parking lot.

Had a great time this morning. First car in the lot. Really foggy at the top despite the otherwise nice weather. Some great views along the way, though.

After a great picnic, a stroll up the Mount Pisgah Trail was just what the doctor ordered. Great views from the summit deck up top, though the temperatures were heating up a bit. Workers were dangling off the summit communications tower. We finished the day by checking in at the historic Grove Park Inn.

It's a steep hike, but you can always have dinner at the Pisgah Inn to reinvigorate yourself.

Great views from here, especially of Balsams. Last bit of the trail will get your heart pumping, especially if you are carrying a 25 lb child on your back.

Jennifer & I origionally had planned to hike up to Big Cattaloochee, one of the "Sixers" in Smoky Mountain Park. However, the dirt road along the mountain ridges which led to this remote are a of the Park had been washed away by heavy rains earlier in the week. So instead of turning around & heading all the way back to Knoxville, my wife & I drove th Mt. Pisgah and hiked from Pisgah lodge to the summit. It was a cloudy & at times rainy day but nonetheless it was a good day out.

A quick jaunt to the summit. Great views from the top. I was impressed with the number of mountains one can see from here. First climbing trip to the Blue Ridge. Climbed Fryingpan Mountain (to the west) prior to Pisgah. A fun morning.

For those looking for a somewhat unique approach to Mt Pisgah, check out the Shut-In Ridge Trail Race every early November. It starts at the NC Arboretum and goes for 17 miles and 5000 vertical feet along the Shut-In Ridge Trail to the Mt Pisgah parking lot. It's a classic Western NC trail running race. The actual summit of Mt Pisgah can be attained as a short "cool-down" hike.

For some reason, I've passed this mountain at least fifty times without hiking to the summit. I was always in too much of a hurry or too tired. After bushwhacking around Sam Knob/Little Sam Knob all day, the climb was a whole lot longer than I'd thought.

Beautiful day for hiking. It was sunny and 65 degrees, however the rocks were wet and very slippery. There were at least 30 others on the mountain but one group was a group of 20 kids so I don't think it is usually this crowded.
