    The location and length of Mt. Pleasant make this a handy and convenient hike more than a stunning one. The views of the valley are impressive and the climb up is a gentle one. There are a couple of opportunities to take wrong turns, but there's only but so last one can get on this one. There was a group of Boy Scouts at the trailhead and a few other folks on the trail, but it's no Old Rag.

    I did this with my wife and puppy on the way from Roanoke to Richmond on Thanksgiving weekend. Both were troopers.

    Beautiful area to hike. Very few hikers in the area as well, which was kind of nice. I took the Henry Lanum Trail (loop). I did feel as though the trail was poorly marked. There were places where the trail would split, and you had to make a guess as to which direction to go in. I ended up re-tracing my steps a couple of times. Over all, it was very nice. I would consider the trail moderate in difficulty. The views from the summit were absolutely amazing. I plan on doing this one again.
