It has several trails that make their way up to the summit with a connecting trail across the ridge. This allows for some amazing views from the top. You can see Mt. Washington, the White Mountains, Sunday River and all the way to Portland, ME. An easier hike makes this something you can do with novice hikers, pets, families, etc. If you are around the White Mountain area this is definitely worth a visit! John Stryker (194) 12 months ago N/A: 10 Completed 4 Reviews Southwest ridge trail to fire tower and descend via firewardens trail. The SW trail was hot and dry on this day but a nice breeze was available due to the open air of the ledges. Good views of the terrain to the SW almost all the way up. This is definetely the nicest, most scenic of the Pleasant Mtn. trails. It was good to come down the wardens trail as it offered some shade and nice cool/cold streams tro splash around in. Amanda was correct about the ticks, I picked off about thirty of the nasty bloodsuckers despite Columbia bug repellent pants and liberal applications of DEET. Amanda Higgins (72) about 1 year ago N/A: 2 Completed 2 Reviews All I can say was trail head was a little difficult to find, I think I took South Ridge trail but I don't quite remember. The trail head I took was off the side of a road that Sunday River is on, the parking area was on the left and the trail head on the right side of the road. WARNING: TICKS! I was covered in ticks most of the way up and down and I stayed on the trail, maybe it was the time of year. Anyway, the views were really great all the way up, the summit/peak I hiked to was worth the trip. I found it to be a little strenuous but not too bad. I'll post some pics when I have time.

A buddy and I did the Southwest Ridge Trail (or Southridge Trail?) and it was a moderately easy hike but a scenic one all the way up. There were moments of icing rock hidden under snow that proved a little slippery but all in all a good day's work. The view from the top was nice, with views of surrounding lakes, ponds and Mount Washington. Bill Roberts (179) over 2 years ago N/A: 3 Completed 3 Reviews There are a few trails to the top. Trails can be found if you go to the Echo Loon Land Trust site on the internet. You can print off the Pleasant Mountain trails. I did the trail off Denmark Road in Denmark listed as 2.7 to the summit. Trail takes you to the Southeast summitthen the follow summit path, 20 minutes to the fire tower on Pleasant Mtn. From summit to summit you go down then it swings back up so don't get confused like I did. Just follow the trail, you will get there. Great views of Fryebrug into New Hampshire and the White Mountains. Bring the binoculars and camera with a good zoom. Lunch on the summit seemed popular. Kevin Peterson (112) almost 3 years ago N/A: 26 Completed 1 Reviews Nice local hike with some nice views about halfway up as well as the peak. My hike time is much longer than it really is. I move at a moderate pace and stop to take a lot of pictures.
