I.m. P. on Mount Pleasant Trail
The last half mile or so of the road to the parking area isn't paved. Lots of loose gravel and bigger rocks in the road. NB.
Trail starts off pretty flat but evevuanlly there's a steady incline. Moderate and not too difficult.
Once at the top you can view either East or West summits. Clouds were rolling in on the day I hiked so there wasn't much of a view....but seeing the clouds actually roll in was pretty cool.
Great views from Mt. Pleasant! Did this hike with my two daughters, 12 & 10, they both loved it. The top is somewhat strenuous. The Henry Lanum trail could be better marked, especially when leaving the fire service road. You pass by some great Rhododendron that fill the path. Total time out and back with nice 45 minutes at summit for us was 5 hours. We did not go over Pompey. Here is the view from the top: http://goo.gl/7TN7W
