Comments: I decided to hike Mt Pisgah for the first time since I was in the general area. The views of Lake Willoughby are spectacular with a long lake nestled between two mountain masses. There are also views to Mt Mansfield and Camels Hump in the distance.
The trail is well constructed with good footing and easy to moderate grades. There are some ledges up higher.
I think the summit is at the high point near a trail sign.
There is cedar near the bridge by the wetlands.
Met Kathy and Jackson again as well as a couple from Northhampton MA and two woman who hadn't hiked mt Pisgah for many years so they were feeling the strain.
