For Ed Farthing, MST in a Day was an opportunity to share the trail he loves with the people he loves. Thus, Saturday, Sept. 9 became a chance to spend time — and 3.3 miles — with son Britt and daughter-in-law Jenny, and granddaughters Kora and Addy. The family hiked the trail east of Mount Pisgah, from the access at NC 151 to the Stony Bald Overlook. “Loved it!” wrote Ed, who acknowledges a particular fondness for the trail between Pisgah Inn and Doughton Park. “It was a great way to spend family time and enjoy the absolutely gorgeous fall weather ordered up for the day – and something to remember being part of an historic event.”
