Elmore Mountain Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Hike this moderate ridge-top loop to a fire tower with open ledge views, boulder caves to explore, and a balancing rock. The trails to Elmore Mountain have been upgraded into a fun 3.2-mile loop, with ledgy views and a five-story fire tower to climb! While hikers of most ages will enjoy the trail, parents with toddlers may find reaching the summit a challenge as there are steep, wet sections of trail and because the fire tower has very few safety railings. This trip describes a clockwise route up the steeper, wetter sections and down the more gradual sections."
--Ethan Hipple and Yemaya St. Clair, Outdoors with Kids: Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
"This short climb to a ridgeline walk has many attractions: rock outlooks, a historical fire tower, and an unusual balanced boulder."
--Jennifer Lamphere Roberts, Best Day Hikes in Vermont (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
"Elmore State Park deserves a weekend rather than an afternoon, offering swimming on the sandy shore of Lake Elmore, picnic facilities, and a camping area at the base of the trail. (In addition to the main trail, a short nature trail loops around near the trailhead.) The mountaintop is easily accessed by most families via an interesting route that winds along a stream and beside moss-covered ledges."
--Cynthia Copeland, Thomas J. Lewis, & Emily Kerr, Best Hikes with Kids: Vermont, New Hampshire & Maine (The Mountaineers Books).
"Mount Elmore is the lowest peak of the Worcester Range, but one of the more prominent (and more hiked) due to its position at the northern end of the range and its fire tower on top."
--Lisa Densmore, Best Hikes with Dogs: New Hampshire & Vermont (The Mountaineers Books).
