This peak has been called "Pleasant Point" by the DPS for many years, and is probably a more appropriate title for the summit.
Andy Zdon calls it Pleasant Mtn. and I've seen that a few other places but it's not named on the topo so I'll go with Pleasant Point. Thanks Bob.
Sorry, I hadn't seen that Zdon had it named differently. Guess you can go with either! :-)
I had already put (alias Pleasant Mtn). at the beginning of the overview so I decided to add (Mountain} next to Point. That should cover it.
I hiked up there a couple days ago. The locked gate above town, which is describe in the Zdon book, is now posted with No Trespassing / Private Property signs. There are also sidebars on either side of the gate to deter foot traffic. We did hike the road despite these signs. I think it's on a permission sort of basis.
We spoke to the caretaker who lives at the ghost town and told him we were planning on doing Pleasant and Cerro Gordo. He has us sign a "waiver" which was just a notepad log book. He did not give us permission to walk the road toward Pleasant nor did he discourage us from doing so. For those planning a trip, it might be best to check in with him before proceeding.
Thanks for the heads-up. DPS now has the following listed for Pleasant: "The summit is NNW of Cerro Gordo Mine; permission to drive, park, or hike in the area should be obtained from the caretaker at the mine."
