Top Sights in Killington

Thundering Falls

Enjoy the best of Killington’s natural beauty without breaking much of a sweat. The short and easy hike to Thundering Falls, the sixth-largest waterfall in Vermont, is a great activity for the whole family. The wheelchair accessible and stroller-friendly boardwalk runs past lush meadows to a small overlook platform by the falls, perfect for a scenic photo op. Springtime, when the water levels are at their highest, is the best time to go.

Green Mountain National Golf Course

Green Mountain National Golf Course offers an exclusive golfing experience that takes advantage of its picturesque setting in the mountains. Open only during the months of May to October, it’s best to book your tee time in advance to beat the crowds. With courses designed for golfers of every skill-set, you’ll find the brisk mountain air and gorgeous scenery make for an excellent day on the links.

Gifford Woods State Park

Gifford Woods State Park is a popular destination along the Appalachian Trail where hikers and campers alike will find adventure. But nothing beats Autumn in the park, when the landscape is transformed into golds and crimson. Cast a line in Kent Pond, enjoy a picnic in picture-perfect surroundings, or just take in the natural beauty on a hike or bike tour.

Top Experiences in Killington

Ride a Fat Bike

Fat Bikes are whole new, exciting way to tour the town. With low-pressure tires, wide tubes, and tires kept at low pressures, these bikes find traction in all types of terrain and provide a fun experience for beginners and experienced mountain bikers alike. It’s a perfect way to explore the area’s miles of trails when the snow-covered terrain is too “soft” for traditional mountain bikes.

Have an Adrenalin-Pumping Adventure

Crank up the heat at Killington Adventure Center—a play space at Snowshed Base Lodge best visited in the summer (though some of the rides remain operation during winter months). Soar 100 feet in the air on Skyeride, a 600-foot-long zipline ride that offers amazing views of the Green Mountains. Daredevils of every age will also enjoy The Skye Ropes Course, Skyebounce, Terra Tubing, and more. It’s one of the best Killington activities—and fun for the whole family.

Take a Spa Day

Sooth away the muscle tension and all the aches and pains that come from a day full of outdoor activities at Killington Grand Spa. Exfoliate with a warm maple sugar scrub made from pure Vermont maple syrup, or sink into deep relaxation with a warm stone massage. And for avid skiers, the Black Diamond Sports Massage treatment will calm those sore muscles.
