    Wheeler Mountain near Lake Willoughby, VT

    The past couple months I have been working on continuing to climb the Vermont 500 Highest list and NH 52 With A View.
    On the 17th, I climbed Wheeler Mountain near Lake Willoughby. There are so many great peaks in the surrounding vicinity of the lake, many of which afford tremendous views.
    Wheeler Mountain is one such gem. The trail starts near Wheeler Pond on Wheeler Mountain Road.
    As you get near the summit, there is a cliff walk of solid slabs of rock which allow for incredible views in many directions. You can see Burke, down into the Whites, and much of the Northeast Kingdom.
    This mountain has neat geologic features/rock formations with its massive cliffs. Really awesome peak I would totally climb again!

    I rotated the camera to take this photo so I would get both the rock ledge and the sun in the frame:

    It has been 10 plus years but I seem to remember that the road is seasonal (not plowed). As with many VT trails, getting to the trailhead is half the challenge. its just up the road from the former AMC (now) GMC Wheeler Pond Camps so the majority of the road will be broken out if the road is not plowed.

    If a Vermont 52 with a view list existed, this should be on it!
