Killington Peak Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This hike traverses the Coolidge Range of the Green Mountains and reaches the highest elevations along the Appalachian Trail in Vermont. A short side trail leads to Killington Peak (elevation 4,235'). It is from the summit of Killington that the state was christened “verd mont” or “green mountains” in 1763.
From the top of Killington, you can see the Green Mountain Range of Vermont—from Glastenbury Mountain in the south to Mount Mansfield in the north. There are also views of the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Taconics and Adirondacks of New York, and, on clear days, you can make out landforms in Massachusetts, Maine, and even Canada."
