Pleasant Camp

Pleasant Camp is located near the Taiya River 10.7mi (17.3km) from the trailhead. It is just after a relatively large elevation gain coming from Canyon City (hiking south to north) and often a "pleasant" spot to spend some time. Pleasant Camp is the trail's least used campground and offers hikers a tranquil evening. However, if you are hiking over the pass directly from Pleasant Camp, prepare for a very long, next day traversing the Golden Stairs. You must purchase a backcountry permit for this campground.
