Ascent Trip Report

A moderately easy ridge hike from Pleasant Mountain's main summit ..... 1.4 miles, 35 minutes one way.

Met a friendly porcupine on the trail just before the summit, he took his time moving out of the way.
Partly open rocky summit. For the overall details of today's trip over the Pleasant Range see the TR for "Pleasant Mountain-North Slope".
