A trip over the exclusive automobile road, seventeen miles long, to Mt. Pisgah, built by Mr. George W. Vanderbilt at a cost of $51,000, is one of the rarest treats afforded the visitors to Asheville. The distance from Asheville to the entrance of this great automobile highway is twelve miles over a fine improved road, seven miles of which is macadam with five miles of sand-clay.
