Description

The summit of Pleasant Mountain has views of the White Mountains in New Hampshire and a closed fire tower. The summit is free of trees and has a bald ledge to sit on and enjoy the view. It is not uncommon to see turkey vultures and other predator birds soaring overhead.

Short Run: The summit of Pleasant Mountain can be accessed from four different trailheads: Fire Wardens Trail, Bald Peak Trail, Ledges Trail and Southwestern Trail. All trails are several miles long and contain a good amount of elevation gain.
