New England Photo of the Day: Worcester Range

View of the Worcester Mountain Range from the top of Mount Elmore, Vermont

If you head to Lake Elmore State Park (about 20 miles north of Montpelier), you can take the Elmore Mountain Trail to the summit of Mt. Elmore. At Elmore’s 2608 foot high summit lies one of Vermont’s few remaining fire towers. The hike to the top is approximately 1.25 miles with views of the Worcester Range (shown here and includes Mt. Hunger), Mt. Mansfield, and into New Hampshire. If you do not have a fear of heights, you can still climb the 60 foot high fire tower for the best views. The photo above is taken from the top of the fire tower on a cool, August afternoon.
