Willoughby State Forest covers 7600 acres, and is located in the towns of Sutton, Westmore, and Newark. In the area, there are excellent opportunities for different recreational opportunities, including biking, hiking, rock climbing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and even ice climbing.
The biggest attraction in the area is Lake Willoughby which is bordered on the east and west by Mt. Pisgah (2751 feet) and Mt. Hor (2648 feet), respectively. The lake was formed many years ago by a glacier cutting through, leaving in its wake the lake, and the spectacular mountain cliffs on each side. Also, it is Vermont's deepest lake, at 312'.
