The North Carolina Mountains Sights

Mt. Pisgah

Fodor's Review

At 5,721 feet, this is one of the most easily recognized peaks due to the television tower installed there in the 1950s. It has walking trails, an amphitheater where nature programs are given most evenings June through October, a campground, inn, restaurant, picnic area, and small grocery. The nearby area called Graveyard Fields is popular for blueberry picking in midsummer.
