Mount Pisgah is 715 feet above sea level, but is scarcely elevated at all from the trailhead. This flat hike winds through mature white pine and red oak trees and a grid of stone walls, then skirts a steep ridgeline, offering two sweeping views as a reward for very little sweat. It’s a great hike for families and kids.

The trail is quite wild for an exurban area (Northborough is quite suburban); I was even lost for some length of time because we could not get our bearings or find a known trail marker. For being relatively small, the site has many trails and lots of different terrain. It is a better site for hiking or running than for biking, however, since there are many boulders in the path. Many of the trails are quite narrow and skirt trees, so biking needs to be quite cautious. The grades are good for biking, with lots of rolling hills. Overall, not bad...
