With Flanders. Hiked up the Bucklin Trail after hitting the mall EMS in Rutland for supplies. Good fall color and fun rocky trail for the last part. There is no scrambling on this trail though, it's all Class 2. Good open views up top over to Pico. Decided not to do the ridge over to Pico this day due partially to a late start but mostly because there is no real "ridge." It's a ski trail over most of it and the "peaks" we thought would be on the ridge I think are mostly just the names of the ski lifts that go up to them. We hit Pico later in the week though.

With my friend Arthur from the top of the lift. Summit was fogged. Never really counted it because I did not start from the base.

Millions of flowering spring beauties, trout lilies, trillium and dogwood made the trail exceptionally fragrant. Really fun spring time hike!

The Bucklin Trail was closed so I hiked in directly from the Inn at Long Trail on Rt 4 at the Shelburne Pass. Moderate trail to Pico and then easy until you hit the camp at the base of Killington. The last .2 miles was much steeper. Six miles one way with the side trip to Pico and six hours round trip even with forty minutes at the summits. If the weather is good the views are fantastic.
I got nice and muddy!

Power lines at the summit are kinda lame, but the peregrine falcons putting on an air show were amazing.

Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2010


This trail was short and sweet. There wasn't any views to be had. It was wet from the day before. I did however finally see a moose in New England. On a long enough timeline I guess it was bound to happen...

nice hike on a perfect, quiet day. great views today--i'd never noticed before that from the peak you can see trails on ascutney, round top, okemo, magic, and stratton. only disappointment was seeing how trashed cooper lodge has become.

From the Inn At Long Trail (which now seems to be a misnomer). A little bit of hail and snow on the way up. The Killington Spur trail was very cool.

Climbed via the Bucklin Trail from Wheelerville Road. Tons of wildflowers in the valley down below. The trails were very muddy for most of the hike. Plenty of snow above 3500' to the summit. Not very many people out today.

CastlereaghBucklin Trail - Off Trail - Eventually the Upper Catwalk Ski Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2008


Took the Bucklin Trail up. Snow was deep but perfect for snowshoeing, didn't posthole at all. Lost the trail and the blue blazes a few hundred feet from the summit. Wandered around through the snow trying to find the higher ground. Eventually ended up at the Cooper Lodge, where I took a trail assuming it was the spur. Instead it took me right into the ski area, where I went up the Heavenly Traverse and then the highest section of the Catwalk ski trail to gain the summit ridge. Catwalk section was steep and icey, I definitely put my new ice axe to some good use there.
