Only the best make the list.


Mirror Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes and settings you will come across and a relaxed walk or drive around its 2.7 mile loop will give you a feel for its popularity. Highlights are the beach at the south end , the crystal clear water, the beautiful homes and lodgings surrounding it. The lake activity is very relaxing and since no gas engines are allowed, the reflections off the lake can be amazing at times.


A great mountain for families and beginners, Mt. Jo’s open summit ledges provide one of the best views of the High Peaks for relatively little effort. There are two trails to the top so it’s easy to make a loop hike out of this adventure, although inexperienced hikers might find the Short Trail too steep for their liking.
