Even though Wheeler Mountain (2371 feet) is one of the lower peaks in the Lake Willoughby area, its Eagle Cliff provides magnificent, long-range views. I know, vistas keep the old folks happy, but what’s in it for the kids? They’ll delight in the frequent scrambles up rocky outcroppings and alongside massive ledges. And as the trail runs over lengthy, open baldface, even youngsters will appreciate the far-reaching panoramas. You won’t have to worry about initial motivation—the view of Wheeler that they’ll have from your vehicle will be inspiration enough.
