Mt. Pugh offers an easy ascent to a high vantage point - this is a popular "scramble" peak. The summit affords a bird's eye view of nearby White Horse Mountain, Three Fingers, Sloan, and Whitechuck. A summit lookout is no longer in existence, but the fine view remains. Most of the route is on a trail. Note that some maps refer to this peak as Pugh Mountain.
