Need to Know

The view of the White Mountains from the summit is spectacular. There is also a closed fire tower on the summit.

Description

Fire Wardens Trail is one of the more gradual trails to the summit of Pleasant Mountain, yet it is still steep in sections. It starts from the small parking lot on Wilton Warren Road on the west side of Pleasant Mountain. It begins following the old Fire Tower Road, but hits singletrack after the first mile. It's a moderately steep climb until it hits the intersection with Bald Peak Trail where it more easily climbs the rest of the way to the summit.

Did the Ledge Trail. Tons of info elsewhere, but couldn't find that particular trail here. That was 1.6 miles to the summit. 1600ft elevation gain 3.2mi — 2h 10m
