I took the south trail and its a great and free hicking zone! Moderate is a valid rating for this hike. The view is fanrastic! Can be done in less than 2 hours total easily :)

The view is incredible! Really love this hike and I would recommend it!

Great hike today!!! Beautiful views!!!

Très belle randonnée! Des points de vue magnifiques et spectaculaires. À faire en famille!

Took the North trail up and back...Views at the outlooks were amazing. Steep in spots but overall it was mild-moderate in difficulty. Took about 3 hours

Nice trail and great view. I recommend!!!

nice clean trail,one of the best views of the lake and foliage you'll ever see !

Very nice trail! The end of the trail is much longer than you would expect. You keep getting the sense that you are almost done, but then it just keeps going on. It connects with the old trail near the end. The end of the trail is not difficult, but it is a bit risky with steep rocks to maneuver over, so people who are afraid of heights or ledges won't make it all the way. There are still views they can enjoy without going all the way to Eagle Rock. Gorgeous views all around! One more piece of advice - when traveling there, be sure to go through Barton, not Westmore, as that side of Wheeler Mountain Road is not well kept.

Great hike in an amazing forest. The last 30 minutes to Eagle Rock is quite technical. The views are phenomenal!!

Nice short hike. Don't miss the western lookout past the summit. If you're hiking with a dog, you'll want to keep him/her on a leash, since the trail is never far from dizzyingly high cliffs.

The rock face at the top is breathtaking, photos will never fully capture the majestic feel. The views are spectacular.

Super. Las vistas son manificas y el camino esta bien marcado y no demanda mucha energia.

súper belle expérience.

Out and back. Views from the rocky outcrops over Lake Willoughby are spectacular. Go past the peak into the North Trail to catch the best rocks. Follow the hike with a dip in Lake Willoughby and you’ll have a fine day!

Amazing views.

Belle randonnée et surtout vue spectaculaire au sommet

Great hike. Mileage is way off, though. It’s actually closer to 11 miles out and back!

A little bit of everything on the North Trail. Except rungs/ladders. Nice Views. Took about 3 1/2 hours up and down.

Well-groomed, easy-to-find and worth the trek. CCC road not a problem. Scooted right up to trailhead parking in RAV4 with entry point just uphill from there. Fergus, our dog, enjoyed himself. Didn't make it to all the lookouts, but a better hike than Pisgah in our opinion. Will return next summer. Would be stunning in autumn.

Nice hike mostly through the forest, with beautiful views at the top. The hike was difficult going up, but the views were totally worth it. We thankfully started early in the morning because the foot traffic really started to pick up (surprisingly lots of people out on a Friday morning!). For us beginner/intermediate hikers, it took us around 4 hours, including our many breaks on the way up and picnic at the top. Definitely recommend.

Definitely challenging, but worth it! Took the South trail up and down, but made sure to go down to the west outlooks on the north trail side after the summit. Very steep for quite a ways towards the summit, but I’m a beginner hiker and made it.

Très beau point de vue et sentier bien délimité.

Nice view of the lake and beach below!

Sentiers bien entretenus, peu de roches. Point de vue très intéressant, mais peu d’espace pour arrêter dans les points de vue. 2h00 de marche pour gravir le sentier sud.

Took the south trail to summit. Incredible views, beautiful forest. Highly recommend.

For a shorter trail, it sure is strenuous! There are some steep parts to the hike. I hiked up the north trail and down the south trail. If you do this loop, expect to take a right at the bottom of the south trail, walk about a half mile to the road, turn right again and walk about 1.2 miles back to the north trail head. There are 3 lookout points at the top, all with magnificent views. Two of them, as well as the peak, are located on the south trail.

We took the North trail to the top, there were a lot less cars parked there. The trail was very well marked, started out pretty easy then had some decent incline. We went to all 3 look outs. You must, they are all spectacular. The views were just breathtaking. We even got to feed a friendly chipmunk. He took some almonds and pecans right from my hand. My favorite hike this whole year!

Maybe it was my GPS, but the trail head was hard to find. Once we did find it, the hike was nice. Short enough that the kids had no trouble and the views were pretty.

Mount Pisgah and Lake Willoughby is by far a secret Vermont gem. Hiked this trail over the weekend with two overnight primitive camping near the summit. The trail itself is rather worn from repeated traffic, and with the rock stairs and frequent switchbacks, makes for a rather easy to intermediate hike for any age group. There are many overviews along the trail-- at mile 1 on this 1.9 mile hike you will reach pulpit rock overlooking the southern beach of Lake Willoughby; at 1.9 mile summit you have a southern commanding view of the Connecticut River Valley with the non-view summit within 50 yards. Further beyond on the northern descent you have three spectacular western overviews of the Lake, Mount Hor and Mount Wheeler a little to the North. Along this part of the trail there are several primitive camp sites as well. A very easy and enjoyable hike.
