A moderate trail climb from the east side Ledges Trail ..... 1.8 miles, 1h20 hours one way.

See the TR for "Pleasant Mountain-North Slope" for the complete details of this trip (point-to-point) over the Pleasant Mountain Range.

The open summit offers partial views, it is capped with a Fire Tower (with a vertical ladder) and 2 Communication Towers with solar panels. look for the Geodetic Survey Marker on a large rock. I took a 10 minute break before moving northbound to Big Bald Peak.
