Explore the beautiful Green Mountains and experience stunning views, lush forests, and diverse terrain. Killington is a popular destination for hiking due to its proximity to the Long Trail and the Appalachian Trail, as well as other trails suitable for all skill levels, like the Girl Scout Loop Trail, Leffert's Pond Trail, Deer's Leap Trail, Bucklin Trail and Thundering Falls.

Hiking to Killington Peak is another excellent thing to do in the Vermont summer. The trailhead is accessible via the Killington Resort gondola, making it a bit easier to reach the summit. From the top, you'll be treated to panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. See this hiking guide for more.

The hike to Pico Peak offers excellent views too, and is less crowded compared to Killington Peak.

Before heading out, it's a good idea to obtain trail maps and information from local visitor centers, the Green Mountain Club (which maintains the Long Trail), or online resources. Trail conditions can change, so it's essential to be well-prepared with the latest information. Practice Leave No Trace principles, carry essential gear (including plenty of water, snacks, and appropriate clothing), and let someone know your hiking plans.
