"A long approach, then a steady climb to a grassy clearing and a tall fire tower, with commanding views into Quebec and of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Bald Mountain in Westmore is not only the tallest Bald Mountain in Vermont, it is also the tallest peak in the Lake Willoughby area. Don’t be fooled by the name: Bald Mountain in Westmore, like the other Bald Mountains in Vermont, does not have a bald summit, but it does have other redeeming features. This Bald Mountain is the only one with an elevation above 3,000 feet." Read more

"Don’t let the name fool you. There are at least five Bald Mountains in Vermont, none of which have bald summits, but their tops were once clear as a result of forest fires. Subsequent erosion left the peaks bald for many years, but gradually the hardiest plants returned, followed by trees again. Bald Mountain in Westmore is not only the tallest Bald Mountain in Vermont, it is also the tallest peak in the Lake Willoughby area. Its fire tower is a great destination for hikers. Dogs will enjoy the exercise it takes to get there and the chance to explore the summit clearing and rustic shelter, where there are many interesting things to sniff." Read more
