Mount Pisgah – November 25, 2017

Heading out
I was hoping to paddle, but one of Papa Joe’s hikes fit better into my schedule, so I hooked up with Bill for the Mount Pisgah hike.

Mount Pisgah is an 83-acre conservation area in the towns of Berlin and Northborough. The property includes four pieces of conservation land. The two central properties are managed by the Conservation Commissions in Berlin and Northborough. To the south is a Mass Dept. of Fish & Game property, and to the north is privately owned land (formerly the Devine farm) under a conservation easement.

Checking the map
We entered at the (31) Smith Road parking lot in Northborough (although there is also a parking lot on Linden Street in Berlin) for a 5.5-mile loop. The loop took us south to the South Terrace Overlook, then north over Mount Pisgah to the North Terrace Overlook before returning. While there are no views from the summit of Mount Pisgah itself, there are great easterly views from two overlooks at the North and South Terraces along the ridge.

Another good hike, and we were home by noon.  I do like the early morning start.
