Welcome to Elmore State Park. The Town of Lake Elmore calls itself The Beauty Spot of Vermont. Located in the southeastern part of Lamoille County, Elmore is 23,040 acres, or approximately 36 square miles of mostly forest and agricultural land. Lake Elmore and Elmore Mountain, which rises almost from the lakes shore, are prominent features of the town. Lake Elmore is 219 acres, and lies northwest of the village and empties into the Lamoille River through Pond Brook. Elmore Mountain is in the "Hogback Range" and its timber is mostly hardwood. The mountain is also located in the northwest part of town and has an elevation of 2,608 feet. The park had its beginning in 1936 when the town of Elmore and local citizens made a gift of 30 acres on Lake Elmore to the state of Vermont. With modest means, a picnic and beach area were created. Today, with more than 700 acres, Elmore State Park has become a conspicuous, developed recreation facility.

I love Elmore. I've hiked this mountain as a kid and now as an adult. It was really buggy this year for some reason but still an amazing and beautiful hike!

Perfect day for a hike, great view of the lake from the top of the tower. I'd definitely recommend going up the fire tower trail for a moderate climb then down ridge trail for a leisurely descent if you're planning on doing the loop.

Glorious day today for a hike. The view from the top of the fire tower was as good as it gets. The rock ledge near the top proved to be somewhat challenging to get up but it's not a very large section.

Highly recommend going up the shorter but steeper fire tower trail and then descending the ridge trail for a nice climb followed by a more leisurely hike. Rocky crevasses just before the Balancing Rock off to the right of the trail are quite dramatic. Encountered a mink feeding on a chipmunk as well as some bear tracks and scat.

I used to hike up Elmore as a child when i lived in Johnson and had fond memories of it. I had to hike it again when I was back in town for my HS reunion. It is a nice trail with a few slightly challenging climbs. There is a sign which claims it is 1.2 miles to the summit but it is more than that. This is not the most challenging hike you will have but it is enjoyable with some great views from the fire tower at the summit. Definitely worth a visit while you are in the area.
