Pleasant Mtn.-Mackay pasture trail to Firewardens trail is a 6 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Denmark, ME that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from May until April. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Pleasant Mtn. stands by itself at the Northern end of Cumberland county, Maine. It is also home to Shawnee Peak ski area. Travel time from Portland is a little over one hour, About 30 minutes to North Conway NH. The MacKay pasture trail ascends Pleasant Mtn. from the southwest and is the longest trail to the summit. (around 2.9 miles) Much of the trail is over open ledges and so provides the most scenic viewing of the four trails that ascend this peak. Great trail, lots of blueberries come late June.
Easy trail, pretty with good views at the top.
Great views and fairly easy going. Be careful you don't lose the yellow blazed trail when you get to the first tower. If you do just follow the access road til the trail reappears on your left. I hiked this on a sunny day with temps in the mid 80's so it was nice to descend the firewardens trail which is shady, also there are two or the cold streams to cool off in.
