Join tour guide Bruce Newhouse for an exciting circumnavigation of Mt. Pisgah! We'll start at the North Trailhead and go counter-clockwise: we'll go south on trails 7 (Bridge Bowl Trail) and 17 to the Arboretum, then hike Trail 5 (Quarry Road Trail) south above the South Bottomlands and eastward to Trail 3 (West Slope Trail). We'll continue east on Trail 3 across the Piedmont, take Trail 2 (Biestel's East Summit Trail) northward a short distance to the "new" Trail 4 (North Boundary Trail) going north, then go on Trail 4 west to Trail 3 back to the North Trailhead where we started.
Expect to stop briefly but frequently for observing and identifying wildflowers, birds, butterflies, bees, fungi and whatever else grabs our attention. We'll also talk a little about how the new Habitat Management Plan will make this fantastic place even better in the coming years!
