"2nd trip up Killington, this time with my wife Deb. I have gone up all 5 4000footers but Deb only did 2 so we are trying to catch her up! Absolutely awesome day, cool and sunny, a little breezy on the summit but the views were great. One of my favorite Vermont hikes!" - hbotc, Sep 10, 2017

The weather was beautiful as promised, bright blue skies and in the 70's.

"Due to my wife Deb away for job training, I had to do this one solo and probably the next two in Vermont as well as I get the 5 Vermont 4000 footers done. Gorgeous day, mild temps. sunny and breezy, met people on the way up and down, had alot of fun and great views the hole way. The trail was easy, then moderate and finally the last 2 10ths steep. Next is Mount Ellen and Abraham, will do Camels Hump with Deb!" - hbotc, Sep 17, 2016
"On Monday I dropped Kim off at Cold River Road to head north on the AT, while I drove around to US-4 to head south on the AT with a plan to meet at the Peak Lodge at the summit of Killington. We ended up getting to the summit within 10 minutes of each other. I met Footlong and Chef Tumbleweed at the Cooper Lodge and they joined us at the Peak Lodge for a couple beers. We then all headed down to my car the way I had come up before heading to the Inn at the Long Trail for Dudefest. " - LGH-Tom, Aug 15, 2016
