Trip Reports

Sunday August 18 2019 Mt Pisgah and Lake Willoughby by Steve and Heather Bailey

Eight hikers made the trip to Lake Willoughby on a beautiful sunny summer day. We started off up the south trail to Mt Pisgah. After the first mile we came to Pulpit Rock, a ledge 900 ft above the water with a wonderful view of the south end of the lake. We continued on to the South Outlook, with a view of the ski trails of Burke Mountain. We passed the viewless summit and found three rock ledges with great views of the lake, each one more spacious than the last. We returned by the route we had ascended. Half the group stayed on for a brief swim in the crystal clear waters of the lake. The water was not as cold as we had feared, and we were very refreshed.
