Mount Pisgah via the South Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A well-maintained footpath that begins with a long bridge through a sizable beaver pond and then passes a precipitous perch over Lake Willoughby en route to the top of the cliff that forms the eastern wall of Willoughby Gap. Mount Pisgah in northern Vermont defines the eastern wall of Willoughby Gap on the eastern side of Lake Willoughby, a landlocked fjord that is both a National Natural Landmark and a designated state natural area. The lake is the centerpiece of 7,300-acre Willoughby State Forest, which was established in 1928. It is sometimes called “the Lucerne of America” for its shape and the way the mountains on either side of it rise so steeply. Lake Willoughby is a mecca for local divers because its water is extremely clear for a lake, often with over 50 feet visibility, and because it is deep, 312 feet at its deepest point, with an average depth of 123 feet."
