Looking down the Red Trail
Route: Red Trail, White Trail
For the first hike of the day, I decided to check out a peak I had seen from Mt. Pisgah during the winter. Branching onto the Red Trail, things quickly became steep and scrambly - certainly not a good trail to descend or attempt while wet. Eventually reaching the White Trail after multiple scramble ledges and no fall zones, I followed a slightly more mellow route to near the summit and over to Eagle Point, which excellent views for much of the way.
Backtracking, I bushwhacked just a few dozen feet off the trail to what appeared to be the highpoint of the mountain, then rejoined the trail and descended via the still-steep-but-easier-than-Red White Trail.
