Pleasant Camp is located near the Taiya River. 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 considering hiking over the pass directly from Pleasant Camp, be aware that the extra mile and a half may present too much of a challenge for some. Prepare for a very long, next day traversing the Golden Stairs and hiking to Happy Camp or beyond.
