Named after the Biblical mount where Moses first saw the Promised Land, Mt. Pisgah is the landmark that gave Pisgah National Forest its name. The mountain is easily accessible via a hiking trail from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Mt. Pisgah is topped with the Asheville-based broadcaster WLOS-TV tower, so it is easily identifiable even from long distances. From the summit spectacular views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains abound, including Cold Mountain seen here directly to the west.
