Pisgah State Park

Tuesday, September 06, 2016

Alt Names

Pisgah Trails, Pisgah Reservoir, Ladder Hill, Tuffs Pond, Bishop Mountain, Fullan Pond, Lily Pond, North Round Pond, Baker Pond, Mt. Pisgah, Dogwood Swamp

Last Known StatusOpen

This state park offers about 20 miles of multiple use trails that wind through a beautiful forest. There are several parking spots to choose from however the staging area off of Highway 119 offers plenty of room for large trailers or RVs.

The trail from the southern point starts out a bit rocky but eventually smoothes out. There is a short section of paved road just north of the staging area near Pisgah Reservoir.

The trails are open daily except during mud season (April-May). There are numerous ponds and some ridge climbs of various difficulty.
