Pleasant Pond Mountain

Pleasant Pond Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The climb to the top of Pleasant Pond Mountain gets a strenuous rating because you will climb more than 1,100 feet in only 1.3 miles. Yet what a reward you reap for this effort! Once on top, which is above tree line, you can wander about the broad plateau, walking across large slabs of slate, marveling at the 360° vista.

Look northward and you will see Big Squaw Mountain, the Barren–Chairback Range, and White Cap Mountain. On very clear days, if you have very sharp eyes, you can make out the summit of Katahdin, more than 140 trail miles away. To the east is Moxie Bald Mountain, and to the west are Sugarloaf, Bigelow, and Pierce Pond Mountains. Beyond Pleasant Pond and Moxie Mountain to the south are the flatter lands of Maine receding toward the coast."
