At the site of Mt Pisgah is a wonderful Restaurant with spectacular long range views and the food is excellent! You can hike the 1.6 mile trail up to the peak for awesome views (moderate difficulty and steep toward the top). Do NOT hiking during a lightning storm! At the Mt. Pisgah parking area you’ll also find the Buck Spring Trail leading to the historic exhibit of the stone remains of the George Vanderbilt Hunting Lodge which was quite popular with his Biltmore Estate guests in the early 1900’s.
Enjoy a leisurely drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway from Asheville. Pull off at the various look-outs along the way to enjoy the awesome views and maybe take a stroll along one of the many hiking trails, then head on to the Mt. Pisgah Restaurant to indulge in a delicious meal or dessert.
