    Default Pisgah

    We are going to spend a week doing day hikes in the Pisgah National Forest (NC).
    Do any of you have any trail recommendations? 8-10 miles per day limit.

    I've ridden around the area quite a bit but haven't done much hiking there. I've hiked much more in Nantahala, Cherokee and Chattahoochee National Forests. I remember taking a short hike under the Linville Gorge Viaduct once. Beautiful country.

    I'll dig up a book at home tonight, I think the title is "Hiking Trails in Western North Carolina".
    I will post what I find in the morning.

    Good morning!
    It turns out that my book is quite dated, I do not know how that happened.
    Google "hiking trails Pisgah national forest" for a lot of information.
    I know that you are a veritable mountain goat but I would have to pay attention to the altitude changes on some of these trails. Of course the fact that my nose is about 11 or 12 feet above sea level right now doesn't help me at any altitude. The highest point East of the Rockies is included in this national forest, as are 18 peaks over 6000 feet. Not high by some standards, but certainly high to some of us folks.
    This is a beautiful area, have fun and be careful!

    Tom
