Enjoy Killington Fall Activities in Picture-Perfect Mountain Scenery
The options for fall adventures in Killington are abundant! In the early season, the weather still permits exciting outdoor recreation such as kayaking, horseback riding, fishing, and hiking. The fall foliage is at its peak during September and October, and some of Killington’s prized seasonal events happen during this time, like the annual Brewfest or apple picking at nearby local orchards. If you want to make a short and beautiful drive through the mountains, you can travel to close towns such as Belmont for their Cider Days celebration, and even take a gallon home with you to enjoy by the fireplace. It’s a brilliant time to take a hike beneath the canopy of changing leaves, and to take along a picnic lunch with you!
