  1. Biking
  2. Both road biking and mountain biking are very popular activities here in the area. The scenery is awe inspiring and the air is exhilarating. If you don't want to transport your own bike, there are numerous bike shops in Killington where you can rent high quality equipment. Manfred is a true biking enthusiast. Here a few a few of his favorite routes:


For mountain bikers who like moderate terrain an excellent choice is Pine Hill Park located in Rutland.

Moderate to semi-challenging mountain biking can be found between Killington and Pittsfield on the Contest Trail System.

Killington Mountain offers the highest level of challenge for the adventurous mountain biker. The gondola can whisk you and your bike up to the top of Killington Peak for your ride down, or for the ultimate challenge you can make a round trip pedaling excursion up and down the mountain.

If road biking is your passion, here a few suggested loops: The Plymouth Loop, a moderate scenic lake route is about 32 miles long. The Killington/Ludlow loop through the scenic lake region is about 45 miles long. Silver Lake/ Barnard is a 62 mile loop offering moderate to challenging cycling. Tyson/Reading is a 45 mile ride referred to as the "Alps," suggested for expert bikers. Killington to Sugarbush is a 120 mile ride including 4-6 challenging mountain gap climbs. The immediate Killington area itself provides the cycling enthusiast with lots of challenging shorter climbs. We are happy to provide more detailed biking route information when you get here!

Hiking
  1. Not only is hiking in the Green Mountains of Vermont great exercise, but also a feast for the eyes with lush forests, wildflower covered meadows, babbling brooks, rushing waterfalls and panoramic mountain views. Not to mention nourishment for the soul. The Killington region offers a cornucopia of hiking opportunities. Here are just a few of the highlights: The Appalachian Trail ( a scenic 2175 mile national trail which runs from Georgia to Maine ) and the Long Trail (270 miles long and the oldest long distance trail in the U.S.) traverse Killington with popular destinations such as Deer's Leap with a spectacular view of Pico Mountain and the surrounding area, bucolic Kent Pond, and the roaring Thundering Falls. The mountains of Killington offer a 50 mile network of trails with stunning views of the Green Mountains, White Mountains, Presidential range and the Adirondacks. If you don't want to hike all the way up, Killington's K1 Gondola to the peak can whisk you to a magnificent viewing point.

  2. Pico Peak Trail provides an exhilarating hike starting at the top of Sherburne Pass with a total distance of 5.4 miles that takes you to the 3957 foot summit and back.


The Quechee Gorge hike, 25 minutes east of the Snowed Inn, takes you down 155 feet to the bedrock of the Ottaquechee River.

Only a 25 minute drive to the north of the Snowed Inn is the easy hike to Texas Falls through the picturesque forest to the breathtakingly beautiful waterfall. And not far away is the Robert Frost Trail, a short, but inspiring walk, punctuated by plaques with verses by the famed poet.
