Bugs: Limited in the morning, stopped at the shelter site near the summit and they were pretty bad there. Privy was not in great shape so that may have been why

Comments
Comments: Overall this is a longer but mild way to approach Killington. Roughly 6.5 miles to the top but relatively gentle incline, I think I estimated roughly 430ft of elevation gain for every mile. It’s not the preferred trail to peakbag this mountain but worthy of it. I was meeting a thru hiker and glad I got to take this section of trail. Really beautiful. Trail was dry, couple of seeps along the way but it’s the dry season so not a ton of water on the trail or mud. The hardest part is that last .2 to the summit. Great morning views. The lodge was closed for a wedding but the little food truck was running food starting at 10am.
