HikingGreat!Snow

I hiked Killington Peak from the main lodge parking area & completed the maintenance roads loop. Next time, I would hike it via Bucklin Trail. There was about an inch or 2 of snow above 3,000 feet. The overall hike was much easier than I anticipated & saw a number of other hikers heading to the summit on a beautiful Fall Saturday. I did enjoy the short trail hike to the summit once you ascend the metal staircase above the final ski lift. My total climb time was under 2.5 hours.

I loved this trail! So many great views on the way up, on top, and on the way down! Should be very beautiful in a couple of weeks!

Nice loop. Yes, it’s all dirt maintenance roads, but it’s still a nice way up and down if you’re with kids. There are plenty of other trails to wander off onto as well.

Had a great hike. Picked up map at the base, which was very helpful. Trails were clearly marked. Went up and down the "A" trail which closely follows the gondola lift line. No conflict with bikes or other traffic. Nice views from summit. Certainly not a wilderness experience, but a great workout and short climb!

It’s a service road (E), not a trail through the woods, plus it‘s poorly marked. Pick up a hiking trail map at the bike/adventure ctr first. Wish I had checked out the Long Trail instead.

If you want to hike along a road the whole time.I guess for a beginner that just came from McDonald's,its a great choice:-)

I started at at 8:30ish the Killington Grand Hotel parking lot, hiked (H) Morrain up to Snowshed, picked up (E) Wildlands to the summit lodge, then (J) Summit, then reversed to go back down. The trail was surprisingly quiet for a Sunday morning: I met with one person and their dog on the way up, and a few small groups on the way down (around noonish). The mountain biking doesn't appear to start up until the ski lifts are going by 10 or so. Honestly, I found Killington underwhelming. Much of the Wildlands trail was on ski slopes, which while they did offer grand views, these were usually enmeshed with ski lifts, parking lots, and the hotel amenities down below. The trails (hiking ATVing, mountain biking) are suggestive of being in a wilderness-themed theme park. My lack of enthusiasm about the Killington trails is not say that I think Killington Resort chose poorly - I doubt hikers bring in much money to them, so it makes sense they'd prioritize bikers and skiiers. While I'm glad to have summited my first 4000+ footer, this isn't a hike I'll do again.

Hiked to the top Via Flume trail. Got really steep in some parts, and then took another route down! Nice views from the top!
