Comments
Comments: Went up via Sherburne Pass Trail and somehow missed the spur to Pico Peak (???) so I only bagged Killington today. It's probably well marked and I just wasn't paying attention. A great hike overall, there are some beautiful sections lower down on the Long Trail if you choose to make a loop of it, and it's only a mile walk to Sherburne Pass along Route 4. It's a busy road but the shoulder is wide.
