Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Shelburne Pass and the AT/LT were in great conditions. A few trees down on Shelburne Pass, but easily avoidable. As for Little Killington and Mendon, there were no trails except a little one near Mendon's summit. We had to avoid 2 or 3 swamps in the forest, but overall, the bushwacking wasn't too bad.

Comments
Comments: We wanted to grab Mendon (NE100) while we were on the AT/LT. From the junction of the AT/LT and the trail to reach Killington, we had to go down on the AT/LT for a mile or so and then, we went West through the woods to begin our bushwacking to reach Little Killington and Mendon. Reaching Little Killington was pretty easy. The forest wasn't too dense. As for Mendon, it was a little longer and harder, but near the Mendon's East Peak, we found a little trail. We followed this trail to reach East Peak. The view on East Peak was very nice. Then, we continued to follow the little trail during a few more minutes to reach Mendon's real summit, were there is a wooden sign and a canister.
As for Killington and Pico Peak, the views were gorgeous and the trails were dry almost everywhere.
