Can anyone identify this weed? It is a huge mound and I'm in Zone 6. I thought maybe wild parsnip or something like that. Thanks!

It would help us if you could post an image of the entire plant.

RE: What weed is this?

It could be Pastinaca sativa, wild parsnip. If so the sap should be avoided, it can react with sunlight and cause blistering.

Here is a link that might be useful: Google image results
