Snow is deep but beautiful sunny day 50°F, wind picks up but not bad. Lots of skiers at the summit I saw no one else on foot.

Trail was adequately packed down to hike most of it in just spikes. Couldn’t make it all the way to the peak because the top of the long trail was way too deep. Some may prefer snowshoes or skis. Beautiful trees and views.

Easy walk most of the places. Waterproof shoes required. The trail extends along a thin ice covered brook. Goes up to the pico Chairlift.

Finally cold enough for the snow to stay on the ground. Spectacular views. Trail was muddy in parts, but not a hindrance

HikingGreat!

awesome! hiked with a few friends and three dogs. not much traffic on a rainy Saturday morning. took us about five hours total, though we took a slightly different descent. descent was slow and winding, easier on our tired knees. would definitely recommend!

Beautiful day for really nice hike. Fortunately we went early as hit a lot of people traffic right at end on way back. Most I’ve ever seen. Foliage view was quite beautiful. Our pup enjoyed herself as well.

Gorgeous trail! Took it very slow, so don’t use my time, but very pretty forested trail with a gentle incline most of the way. Walk around at the top for all of the views!

Didn’t make it to the peak. The trail was pretty muddy, steep, it was raining and we started too late. Turned around about 1.5 miles from the peak. It was very misty walking through the woods. Creepy and beautiful at the same time.

The trail is always great! My time is longer because I was helping to guide a couple to the top.

HikingGreat!

The Sherburne Pass Trail is a gentle climb (except for the 0.4-mile connector to the peak) and the peak offers great views (except to the west, which is blocked by a chairlift). We hiked the AT/LT up and the Sherburne Pass Trail down, and I would highly recommend the AT/LT over this trail. It's a bit longer but no harder, and there is a beautiful section surrounded by ferns and young birch trees. You can also take one route up and the other down. However, their entrances are 0.9 miles apart on Route 4, and it is a bit unpleasant to walk alongside 50 mph traffic (despite the separating guard rail).

Cool short hike with Peter, Zoë and Clay. Decent views up top, next time I’d take the hour and go over the top of Killington.

Trail is very well-marked at the moment, and barring any rain makes for a lovely hike. Take notice a mile up to avoid slippery rocks and bring a snack to enjoy at the summit.
