Prominent peak in Westmore, VT offering breathtaking views and popular for hiking and outdoor recreation activities.

Tips from the community

A hidden gem in the North East Kingdom. Trek the 4.1 miles up Mount Pigsah for amazing views , rent a kayak from Clyde River Rec (they'll even drop them off for ya), and pop in the Willoughby Lake Store for local goodies. If you have more than a day, primitive camp sites are a'plenty. 4.1 mile out-and-back, 1653ft gain.

I've spent the last 10 years testing Vermont's trails so that you don't have to & here are some of my faves:
