Mount Pleasant Professional Review and Guide
"Mount Pleasant must rank as one of Virginia’s most aptly named peaks. Few hikes, if any, offer so much for so little work. For the price of a small elevation gain, hikers can climb two of the Blue Ridge’s highest peaks on a loop trail that is, for lack of a better phrase, quite pleasant.
Steep, rocky climbs along the final miles to Mount Pleasant will appease the gung ho hiker. Otherwise, it’s easy hiking on wide paths and old roads through thick masses of rhododendron and mountain laurel; forests of oak, hickory, and beech; and small pockets of high-grass open forest."
