“This summit loop with great views through forest and savanna habitats is popular for a reason!”— Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah
Family Friendly Children with the stamina to make it to the summit will enjoy the rewarding views. The trails are wide enough to walk side-by-side with a friend or caregiver.
There is poison oak throughout the park that the Friends of Buford Park cut back from the trails. Be careful brushing against vegetation alongside the trail!
Trail #17 will merge with Trail #7; continue straight at the intersection. Soon youll reach the intersection with Trail #3 - West Slope Trail. Go right onto that trail until just past a sharp bend in the trail. In one hundred feet or so, will be the intersection with Trail #4 - Spur, take a left on that. Trail #4 - Spur will climb at mostly a moderate grade through mixed forest dominated by firs and ferns and eventually become a gravel road that has a short stretch of very steep grade that will connect you to Trail #1 - Beistels West Summit Trail, where youll take a left to finish your hike to the summit.
On that final section, youll travel through a beautiful section of White Oaks that were released from fir trees by Friends of Buford Park in a demonstration habitat enhancement project. Enjoy the spectacular views in all directions from the summit and then hike straight down Trail #1 - Beistels West Summit Trail to the main parking area. Or you can always return the way you came.
