Nice short hike - a little steep but not too bad. Park at the end of Ledge Road. From there, follow a brook to the Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association Kiosk. At the Kiosk, follow the sign to creature rock, then up the hill. At the sign for lake peak, turn right for a short hike to the peak. There is a little bit of a view near the top. Also there is a lean to or campers (reservations through the Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association are required before using).

This is a decent short but steep hike. This is part of the windmill hill pinnacle association nature preserve which maintains several trails most notably the trails to the pinnacle in Westminster, Vermont. On the way is a large rock formation that's kind of interesting - they call it creature rock. From creature rock I followed the trail up the hill to an intersection where I went right to lake summit. There's a little bit of a view but nothing spectacular.
