A 3-hour hike to breathtaking cliffs overlooking Lake Willoughby. Chiseled cliffs plunging to opposing shores of a blue-water northern lake endow Mounts Pisgah and Horwith unrivalled landmark status. Beacons of the Northeast Kingdom, the bulging profiles of these twin mounds carved by glacial action guide vacationers to the 5.0-mile gouge known as Lake Willoughby. Boating, fishing, swimming, and camping thrive on this popular lake, and visitors with an interest in hiking can climb to an overlook from both peaks. A moderate family trek, the stirring hike on the Mount Pisgah Trail on Lake Willoughby’s eastern shore climbs to rocky aeries high on precipitous cliffs with views of faraway mountains and whitecaps on the lake.
