Highlights

  • 2nd highest peak in Vermont and the southernmost of 5 4000-footers in the state
  • Killington Ski Resort lies on the north and east sides of the peak. It's trails don't go to the actual peak.
  • A treat for thru-hikers: just east of the peak is a large lodge with restaurant and panoramic views, usually open during the summer for people riding the gondola for scenic views.
  • Long Trail / Appalachian Trail traverses just west of the peak to 4-sided shelter Cooper Lodge. The summit is accessible via a short spur trail.
