Really nice!!

Panoramic views at the time. Steep climb up and fun run down. Went in September - definitely some wet , mud spots - challenging, but rewarding

Hiked it in rainy conditions but still not that difficult while also not the best negotiating without good boots. View from the top is well worth it and lots of little fun changes of scenery and natural environment. Go Birds.

The trail is muddy, but worth it!

Maybe I’m just super strong (lol) but I’d rate this as more of a moderate than a hard trail. The Appalachian trail part is definitely fairly easy, elevation change is gradual and the forest is beautiful. Lightly trafficked. Cross Rte 4 from the trail head to take AT North and when you get to Willard’s Gap, stay right to keep on the AT. The Deer Leap trail is steeper and more populated, and also... muddy! Hiking poles would come in handy for this section. The overlook is made up of some large rock faces, a great place to rest with amazing views.

This is such a great hike. Today we were in the clouds, yet it was still spectacular. We came down the back which was very steep and fun!!

I met up with a group, not that I planned to, and hiked this near-4 mile loop instead of the shorter 2 mile out and back popularly listed on alltrails. Fantastic hike with moss covered rocks and boulders, mushrooms galore, and a wonderful view. Just take care at the view, as there are no flat boulders to run around on! I would not rate this trail as easy though- due to the steep nature once you go past the overlook and up to the viewless peak, and then steeply back down to the AT trail. Overall a great trail, well maintained and intuitive. Planning to come back for sure.

Challenging climb with plenty of huffing. We just assumed that fellow reviewers were exaggerating when they said it was “steep.” We hiked up e trail with the intention of descending the c trail. However, c trail was closed due to “construction.” We came down a trail, which was so steep that our quads were shaking.

Wonderful views but a strange place as it includes trails and ski runs intermixed. We felt like we were hiking in a park. Watch out for mountain bikers!

this will always be a favorite of mine. it's a good hike. not too long, not too short. the views are awesome at the top.

A little more strenuous than moderate in some sections. The overlook is beautiful....worth the extra .4 miles.

Short nature walk with a lot of streams. Good for kids. 60-90 minutes. A quick hop to Kent pond.

Steep hike, but was a good challenge. Great views!

Wow!! This trails gives “a lot of bang for your buck!” It’s the right amount of workout when you need a quick hike!! The view from the overlook is awesome!!

Excellent Family trail. Amazing views!

Nice hike. Steep in a few places but never too bad. Overlook rock had a nice vista.

Nice family hike with great views!

Lovely hike, terrific view.

beautiful view, steep trail

Great view at lookout and like others have said, it’s a cardio workout on the way up till it levels out. We enjoyed it.

Would have been 4 stars but for the traffic noise at the beginning/end.
Once you get away from the road after 600 yards or so it is a peaceful and beautiful walk.
First 600-800 yards are the steepest - a bit of a cardio workout - then it levels out until you get to the overlook rock.
Views from there are very good.

Le sentier en lui même était très beau, et très bien indiqué. Cependant, la piste suit l'autoroute alors il y a le bruit une partie de la montée ce qui est un peu pénible étant donné qu'on sors pour être au grand air loin de la civilisation. Ensuite la vue n'est pas terrible car il y a l'autoroute (et le bruit qui va avec) et un village de ski énorme qui gâche vraiment le paysage d'un côté de la vue, l'autre côté est très beau. C'est une belle promenade si on habite à côté et qu'on le fait le dimanche mais pas pour visiter et venir juste pour cette randonnées

The trail itself is nice, well indicated, and the forest is beautiful. But the view was disappointing, with a ski village and the highway in the middle (that you could hear). If you just want to take a walk into the forest, and you’re around, it’s ok. But in my opinion it’s not worth coming just for it, or to take landscape picture.

Peaceful, well maintained trails with abundant blazes and an incredible overlook!

5/5/18: Beautiful trail with varied terrain. A great hike in killington.

short hike with beautiful views. one of my favorite local hikes. top pick when driving back to the area from boston. can make the hike longer by hiking north or south on the AT. great pub at the bottom to end the hike. very deep snow today. track was broken up to deer overlook. had to break trail along the AT and it was difficult because very little use over the winter

Fun and challenging trail. Had no problem finishing with a large group of friends. A few of us never even hiked before so we had to take our time but the challenge was well worth it!

super fun! beautiful views & awesome scenery on the way up. we went while it was lightly snowing & 30 degrees, so it was a tad icy. we took our dog and he loved it! can’t wait to hike it in the spring or summer!

Lovely short hike. Beautiful place to get engaged!!! :)
