The Mountains are Calling
Depending on the time of year, there’s plenty do when you visit the Green Mountains of Vermont. Enjoy hiking trails for every level of outdoorsman. A popular option is Thundering Brook Falls, an incredibly easy and handicap accessible trail that leads you to the sixth largest waterfall in Vermont. Reaching the end of this trail and soaking in the truly magnificent sight of the roaring water spilling over the rocks will leave you feeling energized and fulfilled. Looking for a bigger challenge?

Nothing says “isolation” like a steady-paced trip to the top of Killington Peak! Whether you visit in the warmer months and decide to purchase a Gondola Ride Ticket or visit in the winter and use the lifts to ski and snowboard to your hearts content, you’ll marvel at the beauty of the secluded feelings found at the top of a mountain. It’s truly a spot to take in a deep breath of fresh air and sigh in your contentedness.
