Westmore is located just 15 minutes from Burke and is home to several mountains and great hiking trails including Mt. Pisgah. Don't forget to bring a camera to capture the spectacular rewards of your journey upwards. There are two overlooks near the summit: one offers a near view of the Passumpsic Valley and distant view of the Southern White Mountains, the other a near view of Bald Mountain and the Northern White Mountains. From the overlooks north of the summit, there are partial views of the Green Mountains and Lake Memphremagog, with Willoughby Lake directly beneath.
