Mt. Pisgah is the site of the closed Bobcat Ski Area in Andes. This hike will visit land originally prepared for a housing development. It has the remains of paved and gravel roads to the top of the easternmost spur of Pisgah. The land includes abandoned pastures, forest, and a multitude of stone walls, rock piles, a small quarry and cliffs. The leader is a mycologist and he has found several species of edible mushrooms in recent summer and autumn hikes on this spur, although this year has been dry so far.
