Comments
Comments: The Bucklin trail is a great hike. The post Irene relocation is very well built. It was a little icy climbing the Killington Spur and dicey coming down there not being enough ice or snow for Micro-spikes but enough to be slippery. The view is spectacular is spite of the communications clutter at the summit. I highly recommend this hike.
