Great hike. Very steep in beginning. Took E to A to J. Take J when you get to the lift and it’ll take you to the peak. Very steep coming down the road. Great views and not crowded

Good trail but steep for the first mile and a half. We went up the E route and down Great Northern. Not many people

Very nice. Marked well. Needs to be better directions on where trailhead starts. Heard it’s just a gravel trail down so took the Gondola down.

Did this on a Saturday around midday. Took the E trail up which was awesome! Steep in certain sections but it goes thru a variety of terrain and plenty of vistas during the multiple ski trails it crosses. It took a little over an hour to hike up and the trail wasn’t very crowded (we did see people coming down as the day got later so get there in the AM). We took the gondola down (don’t have to pay if you hike up) as the trail wouldn’t have been a fun descent. Amazing views and great hike

HikingGreat!

Tale of two trails! The best way to enjoy this trail is to go clockwise (follow the “E” hiking trail signs from the parking lot by the Michelob Ultra party deck) and ascend through beautiful wooded canopy while crisscrossing several ski trails up the consistent incline. The last 400 yards is quite steep right under the gondola. The views at the top around the Peak Lodge are worth it all. We didn’t learn about the Tippety Top Trail until after we finished but it sounds like a little 10 minute spur for even greater views. To continue, follow the wooden bridge path across the mountain face and descend comfortably down the maintenance road. We went counter clockwise and had to grind it out up the maintenance road and the knees and ankles were feeling it coming down through the woods in the small rocks and tree roots. The ski slopes and equipment with no snow made it interesting and the fall colors were incredible.

Great hike. Moderate difficulty with some good elevations. We took the E Trail then the C Trail. I oils recommend starting on C and finishing on E.

We went up E and it was awesome. Even though they call it a loop I would go down the same way I came up. Coming down C was miserable.

Hiking

Easy/moderate hike, a lot of flat ski trails with some natural portions, nice view, but this loop does not go to the peak so you need to switch over to the road to get to the peak and the radio tower is not the peak, it is up behind the tower. Overall, I thought it was cool/different experience hiking through an empty active Ski Resort and it was not crowded, we were the only ones hiking on a Sunday morning, but as far as all the 5 high peaks go, it is the least challenging.

Gorgeous trail! I would say pretty challenging overall. Took the c loop on the way up which was 2 miles of steep incline. No woods or anything, just loose rock. The last quarter of the way up and the first part of the way down were the hardest. Very steep descent as well. Trailing through the forest was nice too. Gorgeous views on the entire hike!

The Killington Peak loop is deceiving, because you aren’t on the peak of Killington Mountain. You are on the peak of the ski mountain two different peaks. To climb Killington Mountain there is only one way up the Bucklin Trail. Oh well the loop was an easy warm up. I will try the Bucklin Trail next time I can get up here.

HikingOff trail

The hiking trails are not marked well. We wound up going over to Bear Mtn. And hiking up the Jug ski trail under the chair lift. We did find the A, J And C trails after we got to the top. Came back down the C trail which was well marked but just a walk down a dirt road. All in all a beautiful day to be outside so that was a blessing.

Wonderful and eerie, hiking under chairlifts and on top of ski slopes. I didn't do the full loop, but I hiked up to Skye Peak. The views were incredible and i believe the path was fairly well marked. I personally explored beyond the trail I wanted to follow, but things were well kept and there were maps all around so I was never in danger of getting lost. Highly recommend

We did this for my daughters annual hike, The Savage Summit. 4 years old — so 4000 foot summit. (1 yo was 1000ft, 2yo was 2000, etc). The hike is good. This is the C trail which essentially follows a service road. My wife convinced us to cheat after summiting and take the gondola down haha. They didn’t ask for passes on the ride down so that’s $17 per person saved!

We started hiking along trail E but had to retreat after 0.3 miles because we spotted a black bear! So we took a gandola to the top and then climbed down “A” trail which was pretty steep. The view from the summit was very pretty.
