While community events always maximize a holiday weekend, the Covid-19 pandemic has taught us that outdoor recreation options are worth their weight in gold. If you’re looking to get outside and soak up some sunshine, search no more. Killington, VT is known for its two downhill ski resorts, Killington and Pico Mountain, which provide a plethora of opportunity when it comes to exploring outside. Depending on the spring weather conditions, there have certainly been years when visitors are able to navigate their way through the snow at the end of May, however there’s no guarantee. What guests can always count on though, are gorgeous trails to guide you on your way to some breathtaking views of blooming wildflowers, budding trees, and so much more. Mountain bikers from all over the country flock here for access to Killington Bike Park, which includes a downhill race trail, expert jump trail, a single track course from the top of Ramshead to K-1 and Ramshead base areas, pump track, skills park, kids’ strider bike park and designated uphill mountain bike route.
A popular hiking option during this season is Thundering Brook Falls, an incredibly easy and handicap accessible trail that leads you to the sixth largest waterfall in Vermont! This is an ideal time of year to visit, as the water levels are at their highest, creating a truly magnificent sight as the roaring water spills over the rocks. The long-distance Appalachian and Long trails both cut through the town, providing easy access to popular trails or guests can choose instead to visit the ski resorts for their epic trail access.
Something else you don’t want to miss this gorgeous time of year is a visit to Gifford Woods State Park. Located west of Killington, visit this treasure trove of old-growth hardwood trees, including sugar maples and beeches. Maple trees are truly a Vermont staple, so you don’t want to miss seeing these glorious trees stretch out after their long winter hibernation.
