Shitty/boring trail up, but really great views

short, easy, good for the dog and walking distance from my house

There is a new parking lot on Rte 35 between Rte 237 and the railroad track. Fox Run is just a few yards behind the lot.

A simple hike with enough elevation gain to be strenuous for me. I like to do a slightly shorter version of the trail (1.7 miles). . I turn around at the second and last outlook and don’t continue to the end. If you do that you’ll get a little more distance but almost no extra elevation and no more views. You’ll just walk a little further along the wooded ridge and I’m not usually interested in that.

Very cute set of trails. Great place for kids. Some very cool and well built jungle course things which were a blast to play on. Overall a great place to go for a walk.

I was turned off by the no dog thing- but on my way up- someone had a dog anyway- rebels... but seriously- a good hike- good views- but nothing to really look at except that scenic overlook- summit was very disappointing. It was ok, tho. Definitely good exercise! Just kinda boring.

I would consider this hike easy/moderate. Trails are well maintained, and well marked.

Took this trail up to the summit, steady and steep elevation the first mile but the view is absolutely worth it. The trail was wet and slippery in some of the more challenging places so we opted to come down via the Ledges trail and hiked about a mile and a half down the road back to the Bald Peak Trail parking lot. Would probably do this trail again after exploring all the other trails on the mountain.

This trail is not for 4 wheel drive vehicles, atv and quads yes, they have signs posted on both ends "No cars trucks or suvs beyond this point

Great hike! A bit hard in some places, but the views were nice!!

I’ve done this trail many times . Up and down the Blue only , one hour up and one hour down. I find it to be a good work out, with great views, and a nice little scramble at the top. I think it is one of the best hikes within an hour of Portland.

This was a great hike. Went from one parking lot to the next. Along the way you can see that some trees have tags on them, telling you what they are. When done we had walked about 4 miles. Will be back for sure. Nice easy walk in the woods.

September 1st 2018. was a perfect day to go hiking we went on this hike. trail os well marked just about did all of the trails. I enjoyed it.

Two friends went on this trail today 9/3/2018. They started up the blue trail but there was just to many people so they turned around and went up the yellow trail. Lots of uphill and rocks to climb. They went for a little bit when the heat got the better of them, turned around went back to their car. But at the car they found that someone had smashed in the back windshield and stole from inside the car. So they will not be back and this would not be where I would go with my kids.

another great walk on these trails, covered yellow, white, blue and red marked trails.

Been hiking Pleasant Mtn for 10 years on the Fire Warden Trail and the trails off Mountain Rd, but have never done the SW Ridge Trail, for whatever reason. We have been missing out! This is now my favorite way to summit Pleasant Mtn. Many great views on the way up and a great workout. It’s rated moderate, but I would put it on the upper end of moderate.

The views at the main summit are always enjoyable.

Nice hike! Went up blue trail, came down yellow! Lots of white birch trees and beach nuts on yellow trail! Love them! Good day!

Nice walk through the woods.

Short and sweet. Awesome view of lakes from the top.

Very fun hike, the first mile and a half suck and make you curse as it is a steep climb up. It eventually gets better and is worth the view from the summit, would recommend!

Nice short hike

Great views!

Fun hike with wife and dog. Went up the blue and down the yellow. A good workout with a couple scrambling spots, especially near the peak.

Took blue up and yellow down. I think some new marking may have been put up on the yellow trail as we didn’t have any problems once we were on it. Look for the large rock pile on the opposite side of summit and towards the left to pick it up the yellow trail at the top. Once you get going down the trail a bit, you’ll start noticing the yellow markers.

Will add Stone Mtn trail next time.

Did this one today! Wonderful hike up, great views, can’t wait to do it in the fall

Great short hike with a nice view at the top. The elevation gain was gradual which made it just challenging enough, but not too hard. Definitely worth your time, but be aware the parking lot is a little small so there's a chance you may not find a spot.

The view is worth the challenge. We'll maintained trail, thank you to the volunteers who were working so hard when we were there.

We hiked this trail on 8/25/18 with our dog. It’s a short hike to the top with great view of several local lakes. Definitely recommend the entire summit loop-the back side of the mountain is a bit more of a challenge but overall a fairly easy hike.

The Road / path to the top is not pretty scenery and Rocky. Wide enough for a Hummer vehicle. however, the scenery at the top sitting on the ledges is absolutely breathtaking and you feel like you're on top of the world. Gave it a 4-star because of the trail on the way up. Other than that it's a five-star

Really great hike for day trippers. The end was moderate-difficult but nice views from the leak.

Love these trails. Well maintained with nice views. Can sometimes be crowded.
