At 2,006 ft, Pleasant Mountain is the tallest mountain in southern Maine and one of the defining landmarks of the Sebago Lake region. The mountain is a destination for hikers, birdwatchers, snowmobilers, hunters, snowshoers and skiers. Pleasant Mountain’s proximity to both Portland and Boston make it an important environmental, recreational and economic resource for the region.
Loon Echo Land Trust (LELT) owns 2,064 acres on the mountain and protects an additional 24 acres through a conservation easement. LELT oversees the management and stewardship of the 10-mile hiking trail network on Pleasant Mountain. The majority of the land that the Ledges, Bald Peak and Southwest Ridge trails are on is owned & managed by LELT.
We have signed trail agreements with four private landowners allowing LELT to conduct trail maintenance and improvements. These landowners generously allow the public to use the trails over their properties. Trail users should respect the land and follow the visitor guidelines to ensure all of the trails remain open to the public.
NOTE: Pleasant Mountain Ski Area
is owned & managed separately from LELT's land and the hiking trail network. Please see the trail map for clarification.
