Peak Description

Killington is the second highest peak in Vermont and is best known as the home of the largest downhill ski area in the eastern United States. The ski area blankets vast areas to the east of the main peak, but the main summit lies a hundred feet above the highest lifts and lodges. The Appalachian Trail avoids the ski development as it traverses the peak, sparing summer hikers most views of the skiing infrastructure, which is never scenic without winter snowfall covering the trails.

Hmmm - should I slog up Killington Peak or take the gondola? Maybe I'll sit down at this picnic table and think about it (2015-09-23). Photo by Jobe Wymore.
