Points of Interest

1. Parking Area/Trailhead

Lots of parking in the gravel area, and be careful of all the people and dogs. Lots of people park along the road as well. The trail starts up at the board seen in the picture.

You can choose to go left or right, both trails lead to the top, although the trail to the left has better views as you go up.

2. Trail Junction

Keep to the right heading uphill.

3. Trail Juntion

Keep heading uphill to get to the top. When you come back down turn left here heading downhill to the south will take you through an oak meadow and to the Arboretum

4. Trail Junction

Keep right here heading uphill.

6. Trail Junction

Turning left will take you down to the Arboretum. Keep straight will take you back to the parking area.

Mount Pisgah Arboretum is a 209-acre living tree museum. Its riverside trails, quiet paths through evergreen forests, water garden teeming with life, bright wildflower meadows, and open views across oak savannas delight all ages.

Note: The trails for the Arboretum are not tracked in this guide, currently but will update in the future.
