Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trails are in fine shape.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: We saw many happy dogs and one happy hiking goat named Monroe.  
Bugs
Bugs: Surprisingly not bad.... a good northwest breeze helped but with one dose of 40% DEET I was fine for the hike as long as I kept moving. A brief run shower at the summit helped quell the black flies too.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: lost nothing, found nothing, other than the bliss of a great hike in Vermont.  
 
Comments
Comments: South Trail (ascent) North Trail (descent)

A perfect day for a hike of the Pisgah Ridge. Bugs were minimal, trail has a few muddy spots but nothing terrible. Just a great hike and the views of Willoughby are fantastic.
