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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

Great views, easy hike for all ages. Trail showed obvious signs of high traffic, could not tell where the original trail was due to the trail being wide as I am tall and probably wider. Most definitely a one time hike.

I started walking up and the trail is in very good condition. Great views along the way. On this day views were not that optimal because of foggy conditions.

Intermediate difficulty hike for outdoor lovers. Once you reach the top continue to the west side for a breathtaking view of the mountains and the lake.

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.
