The Mount Pleasant Trail in Rockport begins at Mount Pleasant Street. You will begin alongside a field full of raspberry bushes. Then work your way across the mountain through a conifer forest ending in a blueberry field with a wonderful view of Meadow Mountain.
This trail connects to the Spruce Mountain Trail at Mount Pleasant Street and provides hikers the opportunity to conquer Mount Pleasant, Spruce Mountain, Ragged Mountain, and Bald Mountain in one continuous hike. Students at the Watershed School ceremoniously kick off each school year with this adventure.
