The three vistas encompassed by this hike take in surprisingly varied scenery. Two offer views of Lake Willoughby and the surrounding mountains, while the third, just below the Mount Hor summit, takes in a mosaic of small ponds with New Hampshire mountains on the horizon. The first section of the hike is the toughest, so let kids know that once they have conquered that initial slope, the rest of the trip is a relative cinch. Despite the precautions parents must take at the overlooks (where the sheer hillside falls away for up to 1200 feet), this is a terrific hike for youngsters. After all, looking down on things for an afternoon is a nice change for little guys.
