Great hike and beautiful view of the lake.

CCC road is right across the way from Mount P parking lot. Not a difficult find like everyone is saying here! Drive up CCC road for a while and it’ll be to your left. There’s a clear sign that marks the trail head. Did all three viewpoints early morning! Worth it. Great for beginners and families. Lots of TOADS! Watch your feets!!!!

Better view than Mount Hor! For sure a steeper trek. Make sure to go past the large flat rock for the best view point. So picturesque.

fun hike, great lookout views. don't be disappointed by the non view at the summit.

Nice little hike if your looking for something you can do without it consuming your entire day. The views were breathtaking of lake willoughby! Would definitely recommend this hike to others.

Très bel endroit. Une montagne avec une très belle vue sur le lac et les montagnes au loin.

Nice trail. Amazing lookout over the lake.

Super beau sentier avec vues magnifique! Sa vaut vraiment la peine de se rendre jusqu au point de vue ouest de la montagne!

We liked it sooooo much! We went on the 25th, and seriously, it was amazing. We were all beginners, so it was a feat for us, but we fell in love with the peaceful landscape at the top. What a fulfillment! I would suggest this one for anybody that would like to start hiking.

Super view but not enough km

I've done this hike tons of times within the past 5 years. They've recently redone the trail and now have a different route, which has thrown me off a little bit due to my familiarity with the old trail but if you figure out the new trail it's fairly easy to follow.

I thought there was an incredible view at the top. I went up when it was snowing and the view of Lake Willoughby and surrounding mountain ranges was breathtaking.

The Trail was steeper than anticipated, but a great hike and it was a beautiful day. Our pocket beagle did great on the trail as well. Very dog friendly! Not a huge view at the top, but still worth it.

great climb to top of mt. great views along the way. Took about 1hr 40 min RT.

I went today after it rained quite a bit last night, that made coming back down interesting due to the steep grade being slippery. I went up the North trail, down the South and brought Long Pond Rd back to the car. It was well worth it. Breathtaking views, gorgeous day, fall colors! Would definitely do it again!

Only did part of the trail as I was on a tight schedule. Great views!

Solid hike for the time and distance. I hiked it with a 2 year old in a pack, and reached the summit in about 30 minutes (solid pace). The last stretch is quite steep and I saw a few folks pulling off for a rest. Going down (esp with a heavy pack) is slow due to the grade of that section. Overall great view, fun hike :)

Probably my favorite hike in Vermont. I usually will hike the North and South Trail on Mount Pisgah, and will loop back around on the road. The whole hike is filled with amazing views, even when you are trekking roadside.

Excellent trail with a few lookouts on the way up. Enjoy them as the summit is a bit disappointing.

The trails were muddy and slippery, especially on the way down, because of the rain in the previous weeks.

Beware if you're hiking with an unfriendly dog, most hikers keep their dogs off leash which can cause dangerous interactions in the narrow trails.

Drive along a dirt road for about 8 mins till you arrive at trailhead parking. This wasn't the easiest drive for my Mazda but it was able to do it.
The trails are well marked and groomed well.
The views are wonderful and you have multiple views of varying mountains. I would recommend especially if you are in the area of Stowe.

Decent views for a relatively easy hike, but definitely a lot of "delayed gratification", having to hop from viewpoint to viewpoint through heavily forested paths (no open ledges)

Never actually made it to the trail. Walked and walked and walked forever on CCC road. Terrible directions and no signs directly towards any trail. Terrible cell phone service and lots of bugs. So remember to map the way before hiking and bring bug spray!!!

Vue spectaculaire! Nous avons trouvé la montée un peu difficile pour les débutants que nous sommes, mais nous avons tout de même eu la piqûre il semble bien :) Baignade au lac très satisfaisante à la fin de l'après-midi, le paysage y est extraordinaire!
