This hike is located in the Mount Pleasant scenic area near route 60 in Amherst County. The trailhead is on the Appalachian Trail at Salt Log Gap roughly 8 miles from route 60 on a gravel road. Following the A.T. south, the route climbs to Tar Jacket Ridge, then descends to Cow Camp Gap. We will then do a loop hike to the summit of Mount Pleasant via the Henry Lanum and Pompey Trails. There are sweeping views to the east and west from two rock outcrops at the summit. Both Tar Jacket Ridge and Mt. Pleasant offer extraordinary views.
